A Biblical Role Model: A Businesswoman

Mats Tunehag hada great post about of looking at the Proverbs 31 woman and her role in business. Seriously, check out Mats blog, he's always got some great stuff to say.

Business people are NOT second class citizens in God’s Kingdom. The Bible even portrays a businesswoman as a godly example of how to serve others and meet various needs. Let’s briefly look in the Bible, at Proverbs chapter 31:

16 She considers a field and buys it;
She does a market assessment and invests

Out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She makes a profit and reinvests

18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
She keeps books and manages cash flow

24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
She is involved in manufacturing and retail

and supplies the merchants with sashes.
She has set up a supply chain

20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
She uses part of profit for charitable work

15 she provides food for her family
She is the breadwinner of the family

and portions for her servant girls.
And provides employment

31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Her work in business should be recognized and is certainly commendable
