Religion and business are not two separate things; they are one. Bible religion is to be interwoven with all we do or say. Divine and human agencies are to combine in temporal as well as in spiritual achievements. They are to be united in all human pursuits, in mechanical and agricultural labors, in mercantile and scientific enterprises. There must be co-operation in everything embraced in Christian activity. COL 349.3
God has proclaimed the principles on which alone this co-operation is possible.His glory must be the motive of all who are laborers together with Him. All our work is to be done from love of God and in accordance with His will. COL 350.1
It is just as essential to do the will of God when erecting a building as when taking part in a religious service. And if the workers have brought the right principles into their own character making, then in the erection of every building they will grow in grace and knowledge. COL 350.2
But God will not accept the greatest talents or the most splendid service unless self is laid upon the altar, a living, consuming sacrifice. The root must be holy, else there can be no fruit acceptable to God. COL 350.3
The Lord made Daniel and Joseph shrewd managers. He could work through them because they did not live to please their own inclination but to please God.COL 350.4 ch 25
