Business Equivalent of Biblical Terms

To apply Bible for business, we may need to translate the Biblical terms in business equivalent. For example, righteousness is a main Biblical term. It means right standing with God. It also means meeting up to God's standards. Hence, a business equivalent term for Righteousness could be Quality.

The other terms:

  1. Love = A type of Values, Relationship, Trust, Understanding, Passion.
  2. Faith = Execution, Work of Faith, Faith must result in action.
    (Jas 2:17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.)
  3. Hope = Vision
  4. Discipline = Monitoring Progress and Make Correction
Here are some additional explanation on applying the Beatitudes into Business....
