Discussion #2: Jesus, Money, and Business

Discussion #4: Read Luke 12:22-34 (Links to an external site.) (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+12%3A22-34&version=NIV (Links to an external site.) ). Then read John Wesley’s sermon #50 “The Use of Money (Links to an external site.)”, found at http://www.umcmission.org/Find-Resources/Global-Worship-and-Spiritual-Growth/John-Wesley-Sermons/Sermon-50-The-Use-of-Money (Links to an external site.)
In the Luke passage Jesus presents a radical view of Christian stewardship. Does this passage have any relevance to the strategy of a business? Does it have relevance to the Christian business-person? How can the passage be reconciled with strategic planning and policy in business (if at all)? Does Wesley’s sermon have anything to say to the questions?
