The idea of “Value” is a very important concept in the Bible. There are many examples in the Bible where it tells us how to add value in relationships and business transactions.
Deuteronomy 25:21. Another Biblical principle for businesses is “do not cheat the customer”. This may seem like common sense, but for some businesses their motto is “do not get caught cheating the customer”. In Biblical times merchants cheated customers by using inflated scale weights when measuring produce and goods that they sold to customers.
Luke 6:38. This law of sowing and reaping highlights the advantages of sowing good things in whatever you do. Doing good works as well as being spiritually good enables us to reap good rewards. Luke 6:38 says , “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
leviticus 19:15. Judging others is not to be done lightly or unfairly. If we make judgments about people we must do it within God's will. God is the source of wisdom for what is right or wrong. Without God's wisdom it is easy to get caught up in the trappings of a person. If someone is poor, it is easy to judge them harshly and not give them the benefit of the doubt.
Colossians 4:1. Are we fair to people in every area of our lives? Do we treat everyone equally? Many people are crying out and saying help me from injustice, but what is our response. When a beggar says help me, I need food. Do we feed them? When a young boy says help me, I'm being hazed at school, do we do something about it?
2 Corinthians 8:14. God desires for all of us to live in abundance, but not to squander our wealth and resources. God has given the world abundant resources to satisfy everyone's needs. When we are in a situation where we have more than we need, He desires for us to help out others.
