God’s purpose for the sphere of economics is to release provision and model stewardship. The sphere of economics is launched with the creative inventions of science and technology. It is then propelled forward by the distributive capacity of the business enterprise, which produces, markets and sells those inventions. Both the research and the productive aspects of this sphere are evident in God’s vocational assignments to Adam in the Garden of Eden prior to the fall. God tasked Adam with two jobs. One was a scientific endeavor, giving the appropriate nomenclature to every living creature (Gen 2:19-20). The other involved an agricultural task, stewarding the fruitful productivity of the garden (Gen 2:15).
