Business Ethics?

Do not trust in extortion or take pride in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them. - Psalm 62:10

John Maxwell wrote, "There's No Such Thing as Business Ethics" and intentionally gave it a title that needed explanation.

From the verse above, it looks like Solomon learned a thing or two from his daddy. Both were great business men, but King David seemed to know something that thousands of corner cutters donning striped suits would have paid dearly to internalize before self-destructing.

Business ethics are nothing more than ethics. The Golden Rule is right because it is good and good because it is right, but it also works.

We don't have to learn one moral code for business and another for all of our other human relationships. One will do and most of it is found somewhere in the Bible.
