Doing Business with Christians
By: Rick Boxx

While talking to my friend, Dan, he said, “I’m new to this world of doing business with other Christians, and so far it hasn’t gone well! Do you have any advice?”
Since this has been a common refrain I’ve heard, I immediately had some thoughts. First of all, everyone, even Christians, chase their own selfish ambitions at times.
Many people make the mistake of trusting other Christians so much that they don’t do the research or due diligence they would normally. They are, then, shocked when the other party succumbs to temptation and takes advantage of them.
Psalm 118:8 teaches, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”
Doing business with Christians can be rewarding, but it still requires proper research, documentation, and accountability.
