FAVORITE QUOTE

“The intrinsic value of business is (1) to provide the community with goods and services that will enable it to flourish, and (2) to provide opportunities for meaningful work that will allow employees to express their God-given creativity. The instrumental value of business is (1) to generate funds to sponsor God’s desired activity and (2) to serve as a platform from which Christians can share their faith with others.”

Jeff Van Duzer, Why Business Matters to God
