The Publicly Traded Trap
By: Rick Boxx
February 26, 2015

Tim Weinhold of Eventide Funds regularly writes about publicly-traded companies from a biblical worldview. Weinhold believes IBM’s Roadmap 2015 business plan, like many other publicly traded companies, is seeking profit more than creating long-term value for customers, employees, and shareholders, overlooking God’s design for business.

Tim believes that many publicly-traded businesses have become so focused on short term performance that they are pursuing money more than purpose.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, “You cannot serve both God and money.”

Tim summarized his thoughts with, “We choose God when we serve others, and thereby contribute to flourishing. It is the pathway where we both sow, and reap, blessing. But when we chase money, we sow and reap blight.”

If you desire to create long-term value, choose to serve God and others, not money.
