Biblical Business Insight
‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’ “Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and EXPLOIT ALL YOUR WORKERS.
Did you know that the way you treat your employees, clients, and suppliers affects your prayers? Fair and timely compensation and honorable conduct toward your employees and workers has always been a requirement for the blessing of God on our lives. According to the prophet Isaiah, God turns a deaf ear to the exploitation of workers and employees.
Bill was a successful business owner and a subcontractor who worked for me and was a deacon in his church. He had a flourishing business but began to lose sight of how God brought that about. He was an upstanding person in his community, but he began working his employees 7 days a week. His employees began to have more divorces and personal issues, yet he continued to work them 7 days a week. When I confronted him about his practice he said: "I have to do it to keep up and my employees need the money." I told him he was allowing the demands of those who needed his business skill to cloud his judgment and that he was exploiting his workers. I said, "No matter how much you pray, God ultimately would take His hand off your business." Within 2 years, his business failed, he lost everything.
Success, as we sometimes define it, can insulate us from reality. Blessing comes from Him. No matter how good we think we are, in reality, we are totally dependent on God. The essence of this Kingdom life we all desire is our obedience, but also maintaining just and honorable relationships between all people including workers and employees.
