Making a Profit 101
Making a Profit 101
Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the
Lord thy God, which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way
that thou shouldest go.
Learning to profit is not optional. It is mandatory. It is something that you are commanded to do. I am the Lord thy God, which teacheth thee. God teaches you how to profit. Is it not interesting that the word of God teaches you to profit. Nowhere in the scripture does God teach you how to be poor. Nowhere in the scripture does God teach you how to suffer lack. Nowhere in the scripture does God teach you how to operate with little. Anything, any doctrine, or even person that teaches you anything other than how to profit, is not the teaching of the Lord thy God.
Since profiting is a God teaching, that means it’s God’s business, which makes it my business also. I often hear people ask, “Why is it that you are always talking about money? Don’t you know that money is not everything?” Well, you need to go talk that over with God, because, if it was not everything, then God would not have been teaching it to you, and neither would he have told you, that money answers all things. God also said, “Remember Lord thy God because it is he that giveth thee the power to get wealth.” It is really clear that God desires you to get wealth and to profit. It is also clear that God is not shy about money, claiming that it is the answer to all things. So, if God’s position on money, wealth, and profiting is so evident why are so many of His people confused about the issue? There are believers of various faiths that have major problem with wealth and money. I’ve heard people criticize authors because they sold millions of books, or condemn a movie star for making 30 million dollars for one movie, or complain that Oprah Winfrey makes too much money. The problem with this twisted train of thought is that all of these people in various moneymaking ventures are far more pleasing to God than the believer who does not make a profit. When you do not make a profit, you are clearly out of the will of God. When you are not profitable in time you will become poor. Poverty is the fruit and reward of the unprofitable. And contrary to popular belief, being poor is not a spiritual virtue. I talk about more of this in my next post.
