Bible Reading: Genesis 2:15-17, 1 Thess. 4:10-12 KJV
“…but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more; And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.” 1 Thess.4:10-12
From the creation of man, God had assigned man to work with his hands in order to meet his daily needs in term of eating, etc. As people began to spread upon the earth, business ideas continue to spring up. Man is responsible for creating business and works that will make them money which can lead to wealth. There is no food for lazy man or woman on this earth.
In the above verses, there are 3 major commanded given there:
§ Study to be quiet
§ Do your own business
§ Work with your own hands
A Christian Dictionary defined business as “one’s work, employment or mission. It also means trade and making of money”
There is no doubt in me that every human being has one or two opportunity of making money within him or her. There is something special deposited in you by your Creator for you to make living or become wealthy. But the greatest problem of many people is lack of the truth of making money that can make them wealthy. God said: “My people are destroy for lack of knowledge”. Ignorant is a great disease even more than EBOLA Virus.

EMPOWER YOURSELF TO OWN A BUSINESS
As you are sitting down, I perceive that something new is spring up within you. The next question is how can you own a business? To own a business that will fetch you money on daily basis is not hard, just follow these rules:
ü Your Business Empire start with your ideals – Genesis 41: 47-49, Exodus 31:1-11. There is something inside you that can turn to money – wealth. God deposited something special inside you to make money. Genesis 41:38-39.
ü Discover the idea within you – you are responsible to discover the ideal within you. Pray unto God and listen to your inner spirit. James 1:5
ü Search for a need and ready to fill it. A need is somebody’s problem that needs solution. For every problem, there is solution. Your idea is a solution to somebody’s problem. Once you provide the solution to somebody’s problem, you are automatically making money and become wealthy. That is what Joseph did in the land of Egypt – Genesis 41:55-57
