Do You Consider Your Business Part Of Your Ministry?

Many Christians believe that their business is completely independent from their faith or their ministry. They treat business like a secular component of their lives and when they’re done for the day, they go back into their ministry of being a parent, spouse or perhaps serving in their official “church” ministry.
I’m a bit of a rebel so I disagree and actually believe that my business is my ministry. Over the last 13 years of being in business of some sort, I have been able to encourage, educate, enlighten and equip people through God’s Word directly and indirectly. This has impacted hundreds of lives that wouldn’t have occurred had I not had my businesses or viewed my business as a tool God has given me to reach his people.
Here’s the three reasons I believe your business is your ministry (or at least part of it):
- Just like our personal walk with God, our business should be centered on God since it’s his business that we just steward over.
- We have the capacity to impact lives much deeper than our products and services simply by living out our faith without needing to preach it.
- David was a king, not a prophet and yet his ministry included managing people and resources much like business owners.
Here’s a verse that also includes my sentiments:
Colossians 3:23 – Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters
What are your thoughts? Is your business also your ministry?
