Not too long ago Mr. Cathy and Chick-fil-A came under attack for publicly supporting traditional marriage but the man who refuses to open his restaurants on Sunday would not be moved by protest or criticism. In the end, Chick-fil-A sold more chicken and gained more loyal customers than ever before.
Mr. Cathy once said, “we all know that the scorecard of any business is the profit it produces. Without profit, we cannot take care of our employees, our families, or contribute to the betterment of our communities. The question is: How do we balance the pursuit of profit and personal character? For me, I find that balance by applying Biblical principles. I see no conflict between Biblical principles and good business practices.” Thank you, Mr. Cathy.
Take Away: I see no conflict between Biblical principles and good business practices.
