As a Christian idleness is not good for you; God doesn’t like us to just sit around whiling away time, but most times you find so many Christian doing that. Remember the Bible says; “Occupy Till I come” You are meant to be busy, with your Business, Career, Destiny and the service of the Lord, you are gifted and filled with potentials, which you must activate and deploy to get great reward.
The blessings of the Lord will not just fall from Heaven, it need a channel by which it will reach you. No matter how small what it is that you are doing, as long as it is in line with God’s plan for your life, it will yield for you and you can be so blessed with it and people will wonder and ask themselves what are you doing because they will not have thought that what you are doing will yield this much for someone.
God said “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion”. (Romans 19:15)
So it really doesn’t matter what business that is giving profit the most, but the mercy and compassion of God.
The hand of God in any business can change the level of that business.
Also remember, The Bible says, Thou shall remember the Lord thy God, for it is he that giveth thee, Power to get wealth – Deut 8:18.
