In the current economy, many business have been hit hard or failed. But I believe if we grab hold of the principles that I talk about below that you can still prosper in hard economic times.
1. Avoid get rich quick schemes- Proverbs 28:20 warns us about get rich quick schemes. The verse says, “a man with an evil eye hastens after riches and does not consider that poverty will come upon him.” We have all seen that late night infomercials promising that you can make lots of money with little to no effort and promises of overnight success. If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. It takes hard work and effort to be a success.
2. Do what you say- In Matthew 5:33-37, Jesus warned about making promises and oaths and not fulfilling them. He said,”Let your nay (no) be nay(no) and your yeah(yes) be yeah (yes). If you promises someone that you are going to do something do it. Sometimes you cannot always do what you promise due to unforeseen circumstances, but you should at least let the person know that you can’t do what you promised and make restitution at a later time.
