The average American works for an employer. They are told when to work, how much they will be paid, and when they can spend time off with family. They have little control over their schedule. Entrepreneurs live by a different set of rules. They get to decide how long they spend at the office, how much money they get paid, and when they get to be with their families.
One of the main reasons people choose not to start a business is fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 states, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
What does it mean to have a spirit of power?
You are powerful. You have the opportunity to start something new in your life. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you have the ability to make business decisions and use your money to make more money. Many people worry that they do not have the resources needed to start a business, but you do not need much money to start a business. Steward your money according to Biblical teachings, and you can have success.
What does it mean to have a spirit of love?
Love is the choice to show affection or fondness. When you have a spirit of love in business, you have a passion to provide a quality product or service. You give of yourself to create or provide something for others, and God can bless that by growing your business.
What does it mean to have a sound mind?
God provides you with financial and business principles in the Bible. He also gives you the ability to read and understand His word. The Holy Spirit equips you with discernment. When you are a child of God, you can learn and understand what business choices are best for you. This understanding can lead you down the path of running a successful business.
