Family Business

“My kingdom does not belong to this world.” 

John 18:36

I have been working in our family business since I was 11 years old. We always say our business is a miracle. So it is. It was started by my mom, with no capital, with more common sense than business sense. And it is being managed by a family with more creative inclinations than business savvy. During this time of pandemic it is surviving by the grace of God! 

But there is another business that is even more of a miracle, one million more times a miracle! More than 2000 years ago, the Father left the business to His Son (1 Cor. 15:24-28). And the Son had to learn everything in 30 years, and pass it on to all sorts of ordinary people, like fishermen and tax collectors! He invited them to invest, to commit themselves to this amazing business plan, to follow Him and to advertise the business and spread the Word.

It is a business that will never fail, never go bankrupt, and you don't have to be rich or smart or popular to be a part of it! It's not easy, because to be a part of the Family business, you have to carry your own cross just as the Son did on a Friday like this one. But there is a manual of instructions, a business plan, to read and follow. 

What is great about this business, is the promise of victory and blessing if we follow and obey (Dt. 28:1-2) And if we continue to be faithful, the retirement plan is out of this world!

Are you in?
