I'm Laura and as a fellow woman in Christ who's starting out her first online business of being a virtual assistant, I often ask myself what my intentions are behind the starting of this business?
I think that this is a very important question that is often overlooked by working Christians.
God might have led me to starting a business, but do I have the right motivation behind running it?
That's when Romans 12:1 came to mind reminding me of God's words:
"So, here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going to work, and walking around life - and place it before God as an offering". (MSG)
This teaches us that our businesses are not just regular work but it's a kingdom work! We are working for God's kingdom with every bit of effort that we put into our business!
Colossians 3:23-24 continues to confirm that "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." (ESV)
So ladies keep up the hustle because as women of God we've been called for something much higher than what it may seem to us! You are reshaping the world in ordinary places such as work, shopping centers, offices and more. One of our many intentions for our businesses should be to serve God's kingdom through it.
Praises to the Lord for giving you the idea for this business! Who's a better council for us than the Lord of Lords, King of Kings? Let God breathe this message into you, to stay motivated in Christ.
