When it comes to business, we need to always be aboveboard and true to our word. We should always see our approach as one that Jesus would love and be proud of. I remember that one day Jesus chased the business people out of the temple (church) because of their dishonest approach.
May all I do in my business approach be aboveboard.
“God hates cheating in the marketplace; he loves it when business is aboveboard.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:1)
God wants us to be (live) honest. Jesus makes the same challenge. This focus is huge for us. It is core to having a heart after God because God is truth.
“Ill-gotten gain gets you nowhere; an honest life is immortal.” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 10:2)

Jesus summed up what God wants us to do. It was nothing new. God is all about simplicity. God wants us to love Him and love everyone else we know. That’s it. To do that, we need to be able to focus. That requires we live our lives simply.
“Keep your lives simple and honest.” God to Zechariah (8:17)
“The integrity of the honest keeps them on track; the deviousness of crooks brings them to ruin..” ~~King Solomon
God’s way is the way of integrity. It is core to who He is and it is core to who He wants us to be. The question we ask ourselves is “What does God want me to do?” The answer is the answer of integrity. Anything else leads to our ruin.
“The integrity of the honest keeps them on track; the deviousness of crooks brings them to ruin..” ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:3)
