Who loves profit? We do!
Imagine all the awesome things you can do in your business, with your family and for the Kingdom when you make it!
How do we build God profit in our businesses?
1.Have the right mindset over our finances.
Blessed to bless
We’re building businesses, making profit and building our empires so we can support our families, be rich in Gods blessings, and so we can bless others.
If we’re to busy providing over taking time to spend with our families we’re doing it wrong. Make sure that your family has all it really needs, keep in the front of your minds that to bless your family you need to be with them and be present in the room.
Be open up to all that God has for you without you needing to be there! Blessed to bless others and being rich in God’s blessings means we don’t have to spend every waking hour working on our business. Like we’ve mentioned in the podcast before. Only do what God has asked you to do and bless your time with others and be a blessing, not a tired worn out, empty soul. God will provide the money you need out of that. Trust Him.
In a physical sense, don’t feel bad about having that extra bit of money. You never know when God might ask you to give some of it away to bless others
Thank God for that extra money you do have, don’t waste it in Kmart!
2.Build our wisdom
If we’re going to make more God profit, we need to get wise.
Proverbs 3:14 – 24
14 Wisdom is worth more than silver; it brings more profit than gold.
15 Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you could want is equal to it.
16 With her right hand wisdom offers you a long life, and with her left hand she gives you riches and honor.
17 Wisdom will make your life pleasant and will bring you peace.
18 As a tree produces fruit, wisdom gives life to those who use it, and everyone who uses it will be happy.
19 The Lord made the earth, using his wisdom. He set the sky in place, using his understanding.
20 With his knowledge, he made springs flow into rivers and the clouds drop rain on the earth.
21 My child, hold on to wisdom and good sense. Don’t let them out of your sight.
22 They will give you life and beauty like a necklace around your neck.
23Then you will go your way in safety, and you will not get hurt.
24 When you lie down, you won’t be afraid; when you lie down, you will sleep in peace.
Ask God to show what it is you need to learn for the next stage of your business, it might not be more marketing, it might be something within yourself that you need to change or learn about.
Learn how to invest, never sit still in learning wisdom of how to make more profit.
3.Use the profit you make to keep building
The example of the talents comes to mind with this point.
Matthew 25:14 – 30
14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.[c] You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here, I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here, you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
When we make profit and money in our businesses, don’t go and blow it all in Kmart or buying stuff you don’t need or that will go down in value and don’t do nothing with it either.
Set an amount into your budget that’s dedicated to multiplying. Whether it be putting into your marketing ad spend or into an investment portfolio.
By gaining wisdom on where you can multiply your funds, put your extra funds in there to multiply.
After all the more you have, the more you can bless others!
God profit is different to normal profit. It’s used to bless not to take away!
