Scripture of the Day - March 23, 2012

Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. 

Today we call this relationship employer/employee. There are many employees who don't particularly care about their jobs; they grudgingly go to work, doing the barest minimum. They need to be watched over and slack off at the first opportunity. Some cause trouble in the workplace with backbiting and gossiping. Some are belligerent, and some are just plain lazy. There are also many different kinds of employers. Some are a joy to work for but some are harsh and unfair.
What we, as Christians, have to understand is that Jesus is interested in how we treat each other and he will reward us according to how we interact with each other. Our goal should not be to please man but to please God, and then by default we shall please man.
When you go into the workplace whether you are an employee or employer, remember that you represent Jesus and, for most people, their only exposure to Jesus is through you.
You are an ambassador for Christ. Go with dignity, knowing that you are representing the King of kings.
