Faith Action Item for the Workplace

Girl happy on laptop workColossians 3:23 tells us: “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people”

If you believe Colossians 3:23 and put those instructions into practice, wouldn’t that perspective change how you approach your job, the people you interact with at work, and your attitude towards your boss?

Faith in the workplace can be demonstrated when we follow God’s Word and act on it each day. Let’s put our efforts into working for the Lord and not for man.   Honor your boss and your employer by doing your job well, each and every.  More importantly, you’ll be honoring God.

Give this a try at your workplace over the next week and see how things change.

Faith Action Item for Today – Keep Your Eyes on Him

“The Lord reached down from above and took me; he pulled me from the deep water.” ~ 2 Samuels 22:17

Sometimes we bring about our own troubles.  Recently I made the ‘mistake’ of posting my opinion on social media.  It was an opinion some people didn’t agree with, and some of them disagreed with me harshly.  I took the brunt of their criticism.

This was painful as it came from some people in the same industry from which I work.  Some of the criticism came from people that I didn’t expect.  If I had kept my mouth shut from the beginning, none of this would have happened, however I felt I was speaking out against something that is wrong.  Something that needs to be corrected.  It didn’t matter to them.  They didn’t see the issue the same way I saw it.

Jesus was attacked many times.  He was called a fraud. A deceiver. A liar. A coward. He was called every name in the book.  He was tempted by others to save himself, or to lash back at his accusers.  He did neither.  Jesus kept this eyes focused on the Father.  He persevered and he accomplished his mission, and the world was changed forever.

Today’s Faith Action Item – Build a Foundation

Foundation Pillars

As Christians if we have a strong foundation built on Christ’s word, then we are much less likely to be deceived.  In today’s culture it is very easy to be deceived and start thinking right is wrong and wrong is right.

To do this we have to start filling our mind each and every day with God’s Truth.  What is His truth?  It is found in the Holy Bible.  The book of Romans, written by St. Paul (formerly Saul of Tarsus) is jam-packed with the principles of Christian faith.  It is a great source for deciphering what is truth in today’s culture and what is blatantly against God’s Word.

“In Him lie hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” ~ Colossians 2:3

Doesn’t everyone want an abundance of wisdom and knowledge? Not really.  Many people, by their actions, prove every day that they are not interested in those vital attributes.  I’ve been certainly guilty of that.  However, as Christians we should strive to learn more each day.  We do that by spending time in God’s Word.  We learn it and we start putting into action.
