The Profitable Christian. Are you one?
The Christian income earner should have profitable abundance in all areas of their life: Time, Talent, Temple, and Treasure. If this is not your current experience, or you want to increase in those areas, this content is for you.
A Profitable Christian is who I am. That is also who I am BECOMING! This is my life’s mission at the end of which I hope to hear. “Well done, you good and faithful servant!’ said his master. ‘You have been faithful in managing small amounts, so I will put you in charge of large amounts. Come on in and share my happiness!’” (Matthew 25:21)
I am nowhere near a significant realm of profit to the point of being able to be extravagant, but I am profitable. My most favorite result of profitability is my ability to give generously to the things that move my heart. Christmas 2016 I was able to give every member of my family at our two gatherings, a gift, which for some was money. There were many Christmases in and since the 2006-2010 recession that I was unable to give anyone a gift at all. We were surviving and generosity was a wishful option. Who else knows this experience?

Being Profitable Is NOT an Option for Christians
The fact is, the passage in Matthew 25:14-30 outlines profitability as a MANDATE for the Christ follower, NOT an OPTION! Read more on this in my earlier article, The Profit Mandate.
Matthew 25:20-21 “The servant who had received five thousand coins came in and handed over the other five thousand. ‘You gave me five thousand coins, sir,’ he said. ‘Look! Here are another five thousand that I have earned.’ 21 ‘Well done, you good and faithful servant!’ said his master. ‘You have been faithful in managing small amounts, so I will put you in charge of large amounts. Come on in and share my happiness!’”
Not only is profitability expected, but it makes God happy, and when we are profitable, we get to SHARE in God’s happiness.
This is why I feel like I am partnering with God to do the work that I do here at Profitable Stewardship, Inc. Here, I teach Biblical Strategies on management (stewardship) of Time, Talent, Treasure & Temple to Christian income earners. The focus is on wealth expansion and profitable abundant living in these key areas of the Christian experience because PROSPERITY IS NOT ENTITLED BUT IT IS WITHIN REACH. Profitable Christians can enjoy Debt-Free Wealth and give generously to the things that move their hearts.
We take an unapologetic Christian approach to our topics because we believe the Bible is a practical, relevant guide to success.
My goal is to deliver high value at high standards to my audience.
The Christian income earner should have profitable abundance in all areas of their life: Time, Talent, Temple, and Treasure. If this is not your current experience, or you want to increase in those areas, help is available for you.
For those Christians who ascribe to a ‘Prosperity Gospel’, I challenge your laid back, ‘Name it and Claim it’ game! While I do ascribe to the Law of Attraction, and I do believe in speaking things into existence; I do not believe these things happen without work and moving faithfully toward the expected outcome. MOVING – action, activity, WORK!
God WORKED for 6 days and RESTED on the 7th. God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to WORK! We MUST WORK! That abundance that God intended for us went hand in hand with WORK!. When we were booted out of the Garden we still had to work, except this time, it would be by the SWEAT of our brow! EFFORT! PAIN! ACTION!
Today, there are too many ‘broke’ Christians in line for a handOUT instead of being in a position to offer a handUP! This MUST change, and I am privileged to partner with God in this mission.
Your Profitable Mission
If you intend to become, or increase your position as a Profitable Christian, you are in the right place.
Whether you are a Christian income earner with a JOB or you are a Christian income earner who is creating your income through investments or entrepreneurial activity – you are under a MANDATE to be profitable. This is your mission and if you choose to accept it, you will find many resources, training, and help here at Profitable Stewardship, Inc.
The pathway for the Christian income earner with a JOB is a bit different from the Christian income earner who generates their own income stream(s). However, some of the opportunities you will find here at Profitable Stewardship, Inc. to move you to (or increase) Profitability are:
- Online webinars
- Half-day LIVE workshops
- Online courses
- FREE articles, videos, and audio-on-the-go
- Clarity consultations
- Coaching with Trudy (LIMITED to a select few as I am very busy and I take this commitment to your result seriously)
- Income opportunities with my Team (yes, I am highly selective of those I work with closely)
- and MORE!
EVERYTHING listed here is done with an expectation that your PARTNER (in business and/or life) will be involved with your journey. Even if your partner is silent in the decision or income process, they MUST be supportive, informed and included at some level. Tips to encourage and include them are built into my work and insisted on with my clients.
The road to becoming a profitable Christian is not an easy nor smooth one, but choosing to not take it is unwise. Which Christian wants to spend their life years being busy about un-essential, unprofitable, time-wasting actions? Which Christian wants to simply bury what God has put under your control (time, talent, treasure, temple) only to hear as was rebuked in Matthew 25:26-28, “26 ‘You bad and lazy servant!’ his master said. ‘You knew, did you, that I reap harvests where I did not plant, and gather crops where I did not scatter seed? 27 Well, then, you should have deposited my money in the bank, and I would have received it all back with interest when I returned. 28 Now, take the money away from him and give it to the one who has ten thousand coins.”
