You have increased the number of your merchants till they are more than the stars of the sky, but like locusts they strip the land and then fly away. – Nahum 3:16 (NIV)

Unlike the time of Jonah, Nahum prophesied to Ninevah when the nation was dying. One of the many judgments of Ninevah was that businesspeople were exploiting resources and people with no intent to replenish what they used. This is a warning to us today: are we only seeing how much we can get from our business endeavors, or are we aware of the true costs that we are incurring to all of those around us? Simply making a profit is not enough for God when it comes to doing business.
