"I got 15 dollars tonight!" Sean told his stepdad. "The cocoa and the cups cost me six dollars, so that means I made nine dollars profit."
"Way to go! What’s next for Sean’s Mobile Hot Cocoa?"
"Well, at this rate, it will still take me weeks to save up for that soccer jersey. Plus there are thirsty parents all over town."
"Could you do something to expand?" Sean’s stepdad asked.
"That’s it! I’ll hire some neighborhood kids to work for me! They’ll have fun, and we’ll all make more money!"
A good entrepreneurial idea benefits both you and the people around you. If you can meet a need in your city and people will pay for it, the next step is to hire others. Jeremiah 29:4-7 tells God’s people to work for the prosperity of the city they’re in. Starting a new business, meeting people’s needs, and creating jobs is a great way to prosper your city.
