Some of us are blessed with good employers while others feel cursed. What does God think about that? Does your response matter to Him? Does He want you to give them what’s coming to them, or does God have something else to say? Let’s see what the Bible says. The wording is “bondservant”, but it refers to employees.
“Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.” Colossians 3:22-25 NKJV
Here’s what it’s saying:
- Do your job as you are doing it for the Lord. That changes our whole perspective. We are not to be brown-nosers or to do these with bitterness in our hearts.
- If your employer is wrong, God will take care of that. Let God deal with them. (He does a better job.)
You and I can change our attitude right now and ask God to forgive us for a sour attitude. You will please God and potentially change your work environment through your obedience to God.
