“I’m currently working for an absolute jerk at work. He’s made a job I once loved into one I now hate. It’s affecting my attitude toward my wife and kids and I know it’s showing in my work. HELP!”

Ephesians 6:5–8 (ESV)

5 Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, 6 not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free.  

Here’s some time transcending truths for a Christian serving others in the home, workplace or church:

1. Obey those that are in leadership over you as you would Jesus. < Notice the period. (vs. 5)

2. Don’t just do a good job when people are watching or just to please people. Do your work from the heart!

3. Do everything as if you were doing it for God himself. (vs. 7)

4. God will reward our faithful service to others. (vs. 8)

One Warning About Success

It’s on the mountain top, in the warmth of the sun that the temptation to become strong in our own eyes and pull away from God is very real. We can quickly forget who brought us to the dance and leave with another….ourselves.

To overcome this we must cling to the Lord every day in his word and in prayer. True, this thought is unoriginal, but we only need to look at the boneyard of those that have shipwrecked their faith to know He is our only hope.
