The Bible is a book like no other – full of wisdom, inspiration, motivation and lessons for living. It touches on every area of human concern, either directly or indirectly, including the area of business.
Jesus often used parables that were set in a marketplace context, which are still very much relevant today. The book of Proverbs gives us instructions on how to manage our finances and in the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon gave us wisdom which can be used in business.
