In Christian church history, there have been periods of time when the church has really created a strict dividing line between clergy and laity; that is, between professional priests, pastors, and ministers versus all of the “ordinary” members who are not called to a particular church office. I hope that we lose that because every Christian is a servant, a minister.
Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:6-9)

Successful entrepreneurs look at the world through a lens of opportunity. We want to train the next generation to think entrepreneurially from a young age. Thinking outside of the box, looking for solutions where others see dead-ends and creating new opportunities are just a few of the things needed to succeed as an entrepreneur. Let us help pass this mindset on to your children and teens!
God created work before the Fall. It is a good thing and is meant to provide fulfillment and as a means to glorify the Lord. So why do so many young people have a goal of avoiding work at all costs? Having a Biblical view of work is crucial for young people so they grow up to love hard work and the satisfaction that accompanies labor. We have a passion to instill God’s perspective on work to the next generation!

Although I was born in a Christian family, it wasn’t until I had a personal encounter with Christ that my faith grew deeper. As an Christian entrepreneur, I knew God had given me certain gifts and talents so I could bless others through it. It was through such a calling that Clothed in Scarlet was born. As I learnt more about Jesus and soaked myself in the Scriptures, I was amazed at how God would often teach me Biblical principles I could implement in my own business. The emails I receive from women worldwide are proof that God was blessing many through my business.
Well what do you reckon on this? When my wife and I moved to a different area in England and attended (for the first time!!) a new Church where we knew nobody (over 100 miles from where we had previously lived!!) a talk “A Church Jesus Would Go To ” (also down for the weekend was my mother in law!!!) I got a word of knowledge regarding a gift of extreme creative entrepreneur thinking that had been given me and it should be harnessed. Now the Church (the same Church we attended for the talk) to this day we are still members of and my wife regularly attends is an Anglican Church, holy spirit lead and filled with level headed, sensible followers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I had the option to believe this or reject it. I have chosen to believe it and hope this can encourage other christain entrepreneurs “to stick in there”. Pray about your new venture , about if it aligns with God’s purpose for your life OR do reject it (your choice !!!)…… OR be obedient and be lead by God and forge ahead with God leading. In my heart of hearts I believe Jesus uses us in all ways to spread his word and being in business is just another way we should embrace
