Excerpt from Jesus Christ as a Business Man, or the Ministry of Property
If we, in our social intercourse, take Him and His life as our pattern, and in the business world transact our business as He dealt and deals with men, we have the remedy for all our commercial and social wrongs at hand; while business life on earth will have attained its perfection. Elements are in the plan of redemption, which, if applied to our busi ness world, would adjust all our difficulties between labor and capital, the employe and the employer. There is not a good and great principle in business which does not find its perfection in Jesus Christ, neither is there a good and great principle advocated by the working men which does not find its completion in His teachings and conduct.
A judge once said that he owed his great success on the bench to the fact that he stuck close to Moses' Law. Daniel Webster said he got his eloquence from the Bible, and Cassius M. Clay said he learned his beautiful diction from reading the parables of Jesus Christ. So men will never do business right till they study Jesus Christ, and take the plan of redemption and His teachings as a guide in all their affairs. And follow it as the mariner follows the lines marked out on the chart to direct his ship across the sea.
