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. One could say she had 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! Every day my sisters and I get together to pray for God’s provision, guidance and mercy! It is truly by God’s kindness and plan that we were able to pivot to online selling via Shopee, Lazada and 

But there is another business that is even more of a miracle, one billion 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. Fishermen, tax collectors, even prostitutes, lepers and blind men who were healed, followed Him and learned His way. He invited them to invest, to commit themselves to this amazing business plan, 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, popular or beautiful to be a part of it! It's not easy, because to share in the Family business, you have to carry your own cross just as the Son did on one amazing Friday that changed the whole game plan. The great thing about this business is there is a manual of instructions, a guide to read and follow. 

If we join this business wholeheartedly, and obey the manual, there is the promise of victory and blessing (Dt. 28:1-2) And if we continue to be faithful, the retirement plan is out of this world!

Father, thank You for this chance to invest in Your Kingdom which is not of this world, to have riches that cannot be taken away!
