“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” by Mahatma Gandhi.
We can continue pointing fingers, complaining, or even sadly being accomplices to this problem. Yet, there is an opportunity to individually show up in a manner that will make a difference. Everyone will one day stand to give an account of themselves to God (Romans 14:2).
How should Christian Entrepreneurs behave?
Be a Christian who happens to be an entrepreneur and not an entrepreneur who happens to be a Christian. If every entrepreneur or Christian in the marketplace understands that their identity comes from being a beloved child of God with full inheritance to his kingdom, then it will permeate into every aspect of their lives.
Live, serve, and do business in a way that pleases and honors God. Go the extra mile, be committed to solid ethics, to honesty, to truth, to generosity, to charity stand out in an age of corporate corruption and greed.
Be a servant-hearted, generous leader who elevates others. Audrey Malphur describes a Christian leader (servant leader) as a godly person (character) who know where they are going (vision) and has followers (influence). There are many successful Christian business leaders who lived out and continue living out this definition.
Use your business to create wealth from the marketplace in order to support missions that can influence society. Such areas can include education, health, business, media, government, arts & entertainment, and religion.
Be innovative and creative thought leaders in the marketplace. Many influential people are innovators and innovators can very well change the direction of a society.
