Business Imitates God

This via The High Calling: the theologian Wayne Grudem helps us understand some of the ways that business glorifies God through imitating him:

. . . worship, evangelism, giving, and faith . . . are excellent ways to glorify God and working in a business provides many opportunities for glorifying God in these ways. But they are not my focus here because I think most Christians in business already understand how business can contribute to these ways of glorifying God. What many do not understand, I think, is that there is a fifth way to glorify God, one that we often overlook, but one that has profound implications for any believer in business. This fifth way to glorify God is imitation – imitation of the attributes of God – and it is critical to understand how business in itself glorifies God.
