Business ethics is fast becoming eroded with the ultimate aim being profit. Business owners have to make a profit or the business will die but when exhorbitant profits are gained in third world and foreign nations at the expense of slave and child labour, where sweat shops are in operation, where the workers have to work 12-15 hour days for a pittance of a wage, where the workers are so beholden to the company for their every need, we as customers need to stand up and be heard.

Boycotts harm no one but the poor workers who are totally dependent on their meagre income. Trade embargos also hurt the weakest and most vulnerable in society. Perhaps this is an area where the United Nations should voice global concerns, where Human Rights Organisation can be heard, where voluntary organisations can step in and provide cottage industries as alternative forms of employment.

Corporate governance and accounting procedures leave a lot to be desired in the busines world and business in our own back yards has moved well away from the idea of an ethical, just and honest environment.

C.S.Lewis put it nicely when he stated:

"The greatest evil is not done in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paint. It is conceived and moved, seconded and carried and minuted, in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails, and smooth-shaven chins, who do not need to raise their voices."

Business owners who place their businesses in the Hands of God, discover that their business flourishes, the customers gain and all involved benefit because the success of the business is for the Glory of God. God loves to see us succeed and we are told:

'...God...giveth thee power to get wealth...' (Deut 8:18).

The Reflections for Lent 2002 pages includes The Prayer Of Jabez in four parts and highlights how the Lord brings us success in all areas of our lives, including our businesses, if we focus our activities on Him.

These pages highlight some of the ways business ethics have gone by the wayside. You can find discussions on the Parmaceutical Industry and on Banks and Banking from the main navigation bar above. Any contributions to these sharings will be most welcome. Just drop us an email and, if appropriate, your sharing will be added.

Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'. Prayerful Thoughts & Thoughtful Prayers is a little collection of prayers and thought-provoking stories, and a few links to some other really nice websites. Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina. Please also pay a visit to  Moytura's Irish Bookshop where you can find books on the history of Christianity in IrelandIrish Prayers and Celtic Christianity
