Martin Luther was concerned with business practices insofar as what was done with profits (this is very simplified).

Luther understood that one could make enough money to support their household, and the remaining monies should be distributed to those who are in greatest need. He saw this as “love thy neighbor.”

Can you imagine how different our national and world economy would look if we practiced this theology of business?

What if we really took this “love thy neighbor” gig seriously? How would your life change? How would the church change? How would business change?
