Did you know Jesus was in business and talked about business and earning large amounts of money in the parable of the talents? Are you a Christian entrepreneur or Christian startup entrepreneur? Thought about it? Wanted to know where to start a business honoring Christ? Do you home school and want start a home-based business? What does the Bible says about purpose, profit, business, and earthly and heavenly rewards?
How would Jesus do business?
When the question comes up, as a business consultant, I recommend a book by Kevin Cullis, “How would Jesus Do Business?” and often send my client a copy. Kevin Cullis smacks the nail on the head with his intensive study and report of exactly how Jesus DID business when he walked the shores of Galilee.
“As Christians, we often believe we know best about our business, but we never step out on faith and let Jesus take control. We stand in the fuddle wishing we knew what Jesus would do, but do we look? Do we seek the answers in the Bible?” One client ranted about the lack of knowledge available, keying concepts of money being evil, and crying about the serious lack of leadership from the pulpit for business owners. “Our pastors speak of abundance, and how we should live in Him abundantly, and in the same breathe chastise us for owning and operating businesses at a profit.”
The struggle is real, folks. We have built a wall around the Christian community, without seeking God’s wisdom in doing so, and we’ve eliminated success from our storefronts. Yet, we must not only succeed in business to fulfill the master’s great mission, but we must succeed abundantly!
Learn Why Success Is Right For Your Business!
The most successful among us maybe rich in knowledge, love, and connections, yet poor in pocket… Why is that?
The Bible does NOT teach that we are to be meek in the ways of making our business successful, or even in business. In fact, through a million ways in the Bible (slight exaggeration perhaps) we’re taught to seek out success and claim it as ours.
In Kevin’s book, we’re provided with ample means of discovery and success; shown the way.
Key elements of success are spelled out for the average business owner, seeking the direction of the Bible. Through the magnanimous words of Christ, we’re taught to seek first the kingdom of God and then to seek out and make our fortunes, using the skills and brains God provided us.
I refer clients to this book, because it Rocks the Word of God, and brings it to life as no other has done in a journal of how Jesus would Do Business in today’s market. Kevin does an excellent job of bringing the word of Christ into today’s marketing and adding volume, encouragement, and motivation to follow through. Let’s do this!

Biblical view of business is his foundation of business.
Why put the gold fish in the tank?
Are you a Christian? Do you want to counter the world’s view of Shark Tank business startups and share God’s view of Fish Tank Startups? Do you want to show your God-given talents with the world and marketplace and earn what God has given you the ability to make? Do you want to be like the two slaves in the parable of the talents (Matt 25:14-30) and be considered a good steward and double God’s wealth for His Kingdom? Now’s your chance.
Who should be on the Fish Tank Startup List:
Any Christian who wants to use their unique God-given talents to earn more in the marketplace under God’s economy. It’s based on this verse:
Psalms 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light to my path.
ALL Bible verses for business are the “lamp to my feet,” where you are right now, and a “light to my path” on where God wants to lead you. He shows you the way, it’s up to you to take action and walk the path He has for you.
