JUST ONE OF MANY REASONS JESUS IS RELEVANT

With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, -Eph. 6.8
Profits and stable economies are not the primary reasons for doing good. But those who work for the Lord are going to act ethically in business. Bad loans on inflated prices of homes is a major concern today. Foreclosures are increasing. Accusations are flying that lenders purposely inflated home appraisals. What happens in the financial markets have positive or negative effects on common people, common families. When buyers and sellers do not believe in God, they have no moral compass. They may fly fast and loose with what is not theirs because they think they do it in secret. But God sees. A wise person does his deeds for God's approval and he is less likely to compromise his integrity. But not everyone believes and many people suffer the consequences of their unprincipled dealings. It's not the most important reason, but integrity in business is just one reason to include God in our daily lives.

If you care to hear it, the most important reason to include God in your life is to prepare for the day that we all shall account for our deeds done while in the flesh. The churches of Christ proclaim Jesus Christ, God's Son, and the eternal life found only in Him. If you want a new direction for your life which includes a more effective guide for daily living, then obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Believe in Him and confess that He is Lord of lords. Turn from sin and be Baptized, an adult immersion in water, and wash your sin away!
"And now why do you delay? Arise and be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on His name." - Acts 22:16
