The saying goes, “Give a man a fish, you will feed him for day. Teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.” But here at Nehemiah Project, we want to go beyond feeding people for a lifetime to inspiring and equipping them to feed others by building kingdom companies.
Although the number of graduates has increased, the number of jobs available has decreased. Even with the advancement of our technology and communication, over 40% of under developed countries are unemployed. Despite the gospel’s global reach, people still can’t provide for their families and bring about a prosperous economy. There is no greater gift that the world needs today, aside from the gift of salvation, than the gift of business.
Here are 20 reasons why the gift of business is more needed today than ever:
- Business brings hope
- Business reduces crime
- Business reduces poverty
- Business reduces the threat of terrorism
- Business creates income
- Business reduces dependency
- Business minimizes the threat of war
- Business builds community
- Business creates wealth
- Business helps families
- Business solves problems
- Business brings innovation
- Business creates jobs
- Business helps communities and churches
- Business advances the Gospel and funds the Great Commission
- Business can be passed on from generation to generation
- Business helps turn a receiver into a giver
- Business turns a consumer into a producer
- Business pays taxes
- Business brings dignity
