Where does money come from? Money is one of the most important subjects in the world, a subject that no one teaches you in school. Kenechi “Ifekentus” Nwoguguwu, explores the relationship between numbers and wealth. Enjoy. leave a comment.
So he called ten of his servants delivered to them ten minas and said to them, Do business till I come. Luke 19:13 ( NJKV).
Where does money come from? Does money come from jobs and businesses? Do we have to depend or trust on our jobs or business for money? That salary or that profit that you receive is it enough for the work and things you want to do? These questions and many others have always been on my mind and I have been seeking answers to solve human needs in this regard.
Businesses and jobs that we do are good. We benefit immensely from them to solve some of our needs. We will continue to do businesses and jobs to better our lives. This is an instruction from God.
However, we can do our jobs and businesses with a wider view. For greater success in whatever we do, we must endeavor to do jobs and businesses with a view to benefit many people all around your environment and the world at large. For example, if you are a gate man opening and closing one gate, think about solution that will help many people doing the same job all around the world open and close their gates more conveniently. Multiply your labor or effort with a large number of people and offer them your solution.
Think in terms of numbers
How many more people should benefit from your work or business? Politicians understand this principle very well. During democratic elections, candidates with highest number of votes win elections. It’s the same in every business or job. Apply this principle of numbers in your business or job, you will find out how much work you have to do, and how much more value you have to create.
Begin to work toward higher goals much more than what you are doing already. Don’t be limited in any way. Take up more responsibilities. Solve human needs around you. This requires that you sit down and think. What should I do more? This requires much labor. This is the price you have to pay to bring solutions to a greater number of people.
To create values and get money, you must receive insight or wisdom from God. God is the only source of wealth. God motivates you to act on his instructions in the Word of God. This is what I termed grace for money. This grace comes from God. Once you have received this grace, you will receive solution that will move our world forward. For example, Bill Gates was working with IBM, and he received a better way our computers can work. He suggested it to IBM, but it was not accepted. He went and built computers using his solution. This is how Microsoft Corporation is found. Today, Bill Gate has affected many lives and has made computers to become very easy. This is only possible when God visit you with solutions.
Don’t depend on your job or business, depend on God. Just like our opening scripture says, a man called ten of his servants and delivered to them ten minas, that is how God has called us and delivered that business to us for the benefit of mankind. We should depend on God who has given us life and ability to even do business. In the Bible, Deuteronomy 8:18 says ‘But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your fore-father, as it is this day (NIV). We should trust God and not put our trust in the business. Our sources of wealth are not the business given to us by God, but we should trust God, who gave us the business. Connect your business, job and your life to an unending supply of God’s grace.
