In continuation of our series on meditating on Psalm 1 as a business principle:
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. – Psalm 1:1-3
The blessed man delights in the law of God; and, in the context of our discourse in the past few days, a Psalm 1 businessperson is in business to please God among other things.
A Psalm 1 businessperson delights in knowing and following the counsel of God. Obeying God gives him/her much glee, as against indulging in practices that rankle against His grain in the name of doing business.
A Psalm 1 businessperson does not allow the trends of the time to sweep him/her into acting in contravention of divine will. And when there is a clash between obeying God and doing things the popular way, he/she would rather operate in tandem to divine precepts rather than doing what may be considered commercially expedient.
While a Psalm 1 businessperson is in business to make money, what really drives him/her is higher than financial returns and thoughts of personal gain. A Psalm 1 businessperson puts God at the centre of his/her consideration, and by so doing is wired up to serve humans beyond lip service, because pursuing the good of humanity is a direct offshoot of genuine love for God.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
