How can we incorporate Christianity into how we do business? There are lots of ways we can and should carry the way we govern ourselves according to Christ into the way we do so in business. Can the ten commandments relate to business?
The first week we’ll do part one, the first 5, and the following week we’ll do part 2, the following 5.
No.1 Show respect for authority.
This first principle is based on the first commandment which says, "I am the
LORD your God, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me." This means that God should be put before all others. This respect for authority can be shown in the workplace as God is the authority over all we can relate that to. Who are we authority over and who is the authority over us? How can we make that employee and employer relationship model the respect that God calls us to have not only for him but for other authorities?
