A business owner took our online “FIRE Assessment” to determine how well he was doing in living out his faith in his business. As a person who had been both a Christian and a business owner for more than 30 years, he was disturbed that he failed the test.
I chuckled when I read his following email comment, “I have to admit I was offended that you brought this to my attention!” Over the years I have discovered that many people assume that because they are Christians, then their business practices are surely biblical. Unfortunately, this is not always true.
2 Corinthians 13:5 teaches, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.”
To examine how pleasing your work is to God check out our free FIRE Assesssment.
