As followers of Christ, we're guided by the teachings of Galatians 6:10, which urges us to "Do good to all people, especially those within the faith." This scripture can profoundly influence our daily choices, particularly in how we support each other economically.
Prioritizing Our Faith Family in Everyday Decisions
Imagine if, before making a purchase or hiring a service, we considered if there was a member of our Christian community who could meet that need. This thoughtful approach goes beyond mere transactions; it's about strengthening the bonds within our family of faith. For example, choosing a Christian real estate broker doesn't just ensure a service grounded in honesty and integrity, but also supports a fellow believer.
Similarly, for services like landscaping or home repairs, we might first consider if there's a skilled professional 'on Team Jesus' in our area. This decision fosters our shared values and reinforces our commitment to each other within the faith.
Embracing the 'Family First' Approach
The adage 'keep the money in the family' is a familiar one, often used to encourage supporting our immediate relatives. This concept can be extended to our wider family of faith. By opting to support Christian businesses, we're doing more than completing a financial transaction; we're affirming our solidarity and shared values as a community in Christ.
Opportunity for Christian Business Owners
For Christian business owners, a dedicated Christian Business Directory, like 'on Team Jesus,' presents a unique opportunity. This directory aims to increase online visibility and connect you with Christians seeking your services. Though it's just beginning, the potential for it to grow into a national resource is vast, with the power to reach countless individuals each year.
A Unified Step Forward
As this directory is in its formative stages, your involvement can have a profound impact. By registering your business, you're not only increasing your exposure but also strengthening the Christian community. This is an opportunity to support one another, grounded in our faith and commitment to uplift each other.
Let's keep the spirit of Galatians 6:10 at the forefront of our minds. By consciously choosing to support our fellow Christians in business, we do more than just buy a product or service; we fortify a community united by faith and mutual care. Let's remember to think of our family of faith first, embodying the spirit of unity and support in Christ.
