A Christian in the Workplace
In today's passage, God has a word for servants and masters or, if we apply these principles to today, employees and employers. As an employee you should always do your best, but especially as a Christian, you should work as you would serve the Lord. That means doing your best even when the boss isn't watching, not to curry favor from men, but as though Jesus is watching because He is. But on the other side, these principles apply to employers, as well. In other words, if you are an employer and a Christian, you should treat your employees the same as you want the Heavenly Father to treat you. We may not be able to change society totally, but, at least, we can start with ourselves.
