FAITH INTEGRATION ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
The Bible provides insights and guidance for individuals interested in developing higher moral standards in business. It is rich with money management and accounting concepts that can be inferred directly or indirectly. In fact, many of the theories and principles of business finance are (often without the user knowing so) grounded in biblical stories and/or lessons. For example, the concepts of accounting and finance management can be traced back to the time of creation. Adam and Eve were assigned the responsibility of overseeing the Garden of Eden (Gen. 1:28) and Noah was tasked with building the ark, a structure whose magnitude never before been witnessed (Gen. 6). Even the Egyptian monuments such as the pyramids at the time of the Exodus are a reflection of the practices of managing resources. Accounting and finance are applied to many aspects of human life. Today, these concepts are well-developed fields of study with a variety of techniques and mechanisms to achieve their purposes. Indeed, whether you realized it or not, much of what you learned in this class has biblical foundations and/or connections.
