Building Your Business On The Right Foundation

Laying the right foundation is important no matter if you are building a house, planting a garden, or building a business.

As Christians we know the importance of building on the right foundation. Without it everything is wasted. So what is the right foundation?

Everything begins with the fear of the Lord. The Book of Proverbs tells us the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. (1:7)

We cannot begin to grasp even the practical aspects of our business until we walk in the fear of the Lord.

The fear of the Lord is best explained by referring to another fear, the fear of man.

We all have experienced the fear of man. I’m not talking about an emotional fear where we are trembling and afraid that we’re going to be physically harmed by someone around us.

The fear of man is when we live is such a way that our actions and words are controlled by what others will think of us. Where our convictions are ruled by the opinions of others.

We avoid certain things because we’re afraid that people will talk about us. Looking around us we see that many of the styles of clothing are wore, not because of practicality or even common sense, but because of the fear of man.

Walking by the fear of God means we will be more concerned about God’s feelings then about man’s feelings.
