I am trying to start a business and its taking all my time and thoughts. I prayed for this and all that I asked for has came to be. I'm afraid if I don't act I'll miss my chance. Is it wrong to give up my family, church and personal time to reach a life long goal? I wonder if this was intended or just part of the deal. I'm worried the sacrifice may be getter than the reward the company was to be a blessing to me and my family and eventually other families.
God has given you the ability to start a business. What a blessing from God. There are some things that you are going to want to think about however. The book of Genesis has given us a list of priorities we are to follow in our lives. The priorities are God, Spouse, Family, Church, and Work. Following these priorities as God has laid them out will bring you success in all that you do in your business and in your family. Luke 9:25 tells us: "For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and ruins or forfeits (loses) himself". What will it profit you if you gain the world in your business but you lose yourself, your relationship with God, and your family. What really will you have. In starting your new business I would encourage you to maintain the priorities God laid out for success.
