Throughout the Business Guide, Hansford also promotes ideals pertaining to religion in order to succeed in business. Hansford explicitly states that to succeed in business one must “love your god and fellow men” as well as that “an honest man is the noblest work of god” all of which are brought forward in parts pertaining to proper behaviors of a man to be successful in business.

A successful Christian business man may sound like an oxymoron, but that was R.G LeTourneau. He built big, powerful machinery that could do things that no other machine could do before, but he also believes that a Christian business man owes as much to God as a preacher does (LeTourneau, 1967).

Another verse that can be applied in this organization is 1 Peter 4:10, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace”. The company uses the gifts God gives us and pass them on to consumers to benefit from. The

The article make a link between the nonspiritual and Biblical principles within which business that will be considered responsible and just should follow to. It is going to draw from principles enlisted by the Caux Round Table and those by White.

The stewardship of the shepherd’s roles and talents determine success in the eyes of God. Success is the dominion in one’s sphere through obedience to God’s will. Obedience to God’s will flows out of our relationship with Jesus, and in that relationship, obedience is not a daunting task, on the contrary, it is a complete willingness to glorify God.
According to Duzer (2012), In pursuit of God’s purpose, people need to understand the ethical limitations embedded naturally in design of the God’s creation. It is not enough too simply align our businesses purposes with God earthly design, without limitation we still fall short of Gods expectations.
