Working With The Right Attitude
“Exhort bondservants to be obedient to their own masters, to be well pleasing in all things, not answering back, not pilfering, but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.” Titus 2:9-10 NKJV
I don’t think that anyone will like to be called a bondservant today; employee or apprentice is a more acceptable term in our day. As Christian workers in any capacity, whether in the highest or lowest positions, there are certain expectations that we are meant to live up to.
Always remember that we exist for the glory of God. This truth is meant to guide you at all times. You and I are ambassadors of the word of God, we are living epistles; therefore, every action of ours should promote and glorify the word and should never bring it into disrepute.
God says to be obedient to your bosses; submit yourself to their authority; don’t be rude to them; do your best to obey their rules and regulations; be a man and woman of integrity at work. If you serve well, you too will soon be served; if you humble yourself under others, God will surely elevate you to heights of authority and influence.
