“How does my business fit into God’s kingdom?” Your work on the job affects much more than just your company; it has a significant positive impact on God’s kingdom if you consistently live out your faith at work. Ask God to expand your vision beyond just your immediate workplace to help you recognize how He is using you to benefit His kingdom as a whole. Then continue to stay in close touch with God each day and obey His leading to continue to accomplish something of great and lasting value in His kingdom.
