Launching a New Business? Read the Book of Mormon First

You might be wondering what the Book of Mormon has to do with business. Isn’t it a book of scripture that provides spiritual guidance? Yes, it is, but to God all things are spiritual. He cares about every aspect of your life.

So first off, reading the Book of Mormon will help you be in tune with what God wants you to do, and you’ll feel impressions concerning work that will guide you.

Secondly, there are many great lessons in the Book of Mormon that apply directly to running an organization. Here are a few:


“The Book of Mormon … was written for our day. The Nephites never had the book; neither did the Lamanites of ancient times. It was meant for us. … Under the inspiration of God, who sees all things from the beginning, [Mormon] abridged centuries of records, choosing the stories, speeches, and events that would be most helpful to us” (Ezra Taft Benson, “The Keystone of Our Religion,” Ensign, Jan. 1992, 5).
