Are You an Entrepreneur?

While the majority of Americans wouldn’t mind being rich, they do not have the desire to do the work in order to become rich.  According to the survey, another 43% of adults say being wealthy is “somewhat important” to them, while about the same proportion say it’s “not too important” (33%) or “not important at all” (10%).  It takes a tremendous amount of work to become wealthy and most people are not willing to do the work.  These may be the people who prefer, like Solomon, to be able to rule over the people.    2 Chronicles 1:11 says, “And God said to Solomon, this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth or honor, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life.”

However, “A new study on entrepreneurship, finds that "27 million working-age Americans--nearly 14 percent--are starting or running new businesses, which is record high for this study, which began 16 years ago.”

When we study millionaires, it is consistently found that 80 to 86% are self- made. That also applies to Dec millionaires. In 1982 according to Forbes about 38% of America's wealthiest people were self- made. In 2012, the percentage jumped to 70%.  May 6, 2014.

Amazingly, the richest 1% of the people in the Unites States own about 38% of all privately held wealth in the United States, which is more than the other 90% own.  The 90% at the bottom of society own 73% of all debt. Ecclesiates5:19 says, “Every man to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labor; this is the gift of God.”

People like to emigrate to the United States because of the opportunities for them to become financially secure.  Most come here because they are factory workers. They find jobs in the factories and stay in those jobs for life, unless they are displaced because the companies move out of the U.S.  A very high proportion of them open their own businesses and become very prosperous.  It is very interesting that we live in a land of opportunity, but few of the people who live here want to take advantage of those opportunities.  Galatians 6:10 says, As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all them who are of the household of faith.”  They just want enough money to spend on the things they need and to entertain themselves after a hard day at work.  They are not willing to expend the time and effort needed to do the work of becoming wealthy.

The only way for people to become wealthy is if they inherit it or if they become entrepreneurs.  Entrepreneurship is for people who have great ideas to help the economy, and at the same time, become wealthy in doing so.  Romans 12:10 says, “Be kind, affectioned one to another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another;  Not slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord.”  

Entrepreneurship gives people the means to be flexible with their time, to make as much money as they want, and to help as many people as they want by creating jobs and a more prosperous community.  They reduce the dependence on obsolete systems and create a better quality of life for us.  Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew the; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

Additionally, the business owners help develop the communities.  They also provide financial support to charitable organizations.  A very small percentage of people desire to have their own business, but they transform lives with their business ideas in a very powerful way.
