Topic Summary:
As a child of God, you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession (1 Peter 2:9). Thus, our work as believers in business can mediate God’s presence in the marketplace. Work that is set aside to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).
