Apply biblical truth to the financial decisions that managers make..
A key belief of Indiana Wesleyan University is that scripture helps us make both wise and effective decisions. Yet it is not enough to just make good decisions; one must be able to communicate these decisions and the underlying reasoning. Making and communicating decisions is important to the successful manager.
Upon successful completion of the course material, you will be able to:
- Apply biblical truth to the financial decisions that managers make.
At one point in the ministry of Jesus, it was common for large crowds to follow him. Along the way he would often pause to teach them important truths. These rich passages of scripture can often be applied to multiple areas of our lives and all of business. If you are a manager and a follower of Jesus, it will be important for you to understand how the truth found in scripture can be applied daily in your life and work. In Luke 14:28–30, Jesus talks about the cost of being a disciple.
