“Is it biblical to make a profit?” That’s the question the Institute for Faith,Work, & Economics asks. It’s a struggle for the best and brightest among us. They are built to prosper in our economic system. And yet many of the models they are presented say otherwise. How does money work in God’s economy?
When we become Christians, we don't merely choose an eternity in heaven over hell. Rather, we are "born again"; like a newborn child, each of us enters into a new life that we fully inhabit, day-in and day-out. God desires that we pursue a relationship with him every day, in all aspects of life. When we try to live daily life for the sake of his glory, he deems it sacred.
