Whether you believe what the Bible says is true or not, I believe that there are many important business principals that an Etsy shop owner can choose to apply that will help their business thrive.

I am planning on posting in this thread consistently when I find key verses that I think might be relevant to Etsy shop owners for running their crafting business. If you are interested in what God’s word says about running a business . . . read on! If not, you probably won’t find this thread interesting.

"Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” Luke 16:10

I believe it is very important for us to run our shop with integrity. Your largest and smallest sale should be treated with the same amount of respect. How can God trust you with a very successful business if He can’t trust you with your small start up? The way you run your business today will determine your path tomorrow.

Are you an Etsy admin or employee? I see your shop name is "Etsy Finance".

What I base the whole Mission & Vision of my company on is Luke 6:38:

"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."

Funny, but I saw that verse on EWTN and it sparked me to start Livia's Treasures.
