Message summary & scripture references

As Christians, we are conditioned to charitably give things away; therefore, many Christians who run businesses feel weird and uneasy about selling their products or services in exchange for money.

This awkwardness may lead us to underprice or give away too much, which can bring about frustration and eventually cause us to go out of business. To succeed in your business, you need a paradigm shift in selling. Because selling stuff for money is a blessed activity.

Listen to today’s podcast and renew your mind through the Word of God about selling.

Deuteronomy 2:4-6 NLT

[4] Give these orders to the people: “You will pass through the country belonging to your relatives the Edomites, the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir. The Edomites will feel threatened, so be careful.

[6] If you need food to eat or water to drink, pay them for it.

2 Samuel 24:21-24 NLT

[21] “Why have you come, my lord the king?” Araunah asked. David replied, “I have come to buy your threshing floor and to build an altar to the LORD there, so that he will stop the plague.”
[22] “Take it, my lord the king, and use it as you wish,” Araunah said to David. “Here are oxen for the burnt offering, and you can use the threshing boards and ox yokes for wood to build a fire on the altar.
[23] I will give it all to you, Your Majesty, and may the LORD your God accept your sacrifice.”
[24] But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it, for I will not present burnt offerings to the LORD my God that have cost me nothing.” So David paid him fifty pieces of silver for the threshing floor and the oxen.
