Jesus, the Entrepreneur and CEO
One time, someone wrote a note to me. He said he hates me because I combine capitalism and religion in my life and writings. I believe I can understand much where he's coming from.
In the Bible, there's no such dichotomy in life. It supports integration between business and spirituality. Among various verses, Colossians 3:17 states, "Whatsoever you do, in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him." All of life, including business, can be integrated with spirituality and ministry.
The books, "Jesus the Entrepreneur" and "Jesus the CEO," are now two international bestsellers written by Laurie Beth Jones. The books make an embracing case of Jesus as a modern day role model for those seeking to put spiritual life and ministry to practice in the world of business.
The two bestseller books show that there is no contradiction between earning a comfortable living even as you use your business to promote your deepest spiritual and personal beliefs. How? By sharing the timeless wisdom of the Bible to benefit the bottom line of business!
I hope this explains well why I write the way I do. And why I combine business with my spirituality and ministry. It's what keeps me going and finding soul satisfaction in what I do.
