For many, going to work can be a real chore. Dealing with unreasonable employers, co-workers, and customers can make having a job an unpleasant experience. On top of that, we live in a fallen world. In light of that, can a person really have a meaningful work experience, filled with joy and satisfaction? The answer to that is a resounding yes. It simply requires having God’s perspective every time we enter the workplace.
Colossians 3:22-24 clearly reveals what is the predominant issue for most believers in the workplace. Far too many are working for the wrong person. They are working for the wrong boss, supervisor or manager. Scripture says that when you and I go to work, we are to work for the Lord. He is the Boss. Therefore, you and I are never to settle for mediocrity in our work. Rather, we are to strive for the highest degree and standard of excellence since the God we serve is excellent and expects the same from His image-bearers.
Best of all, having God as a boss means you will never be let down. All His ways are perfect and lead to a purpose-filled, productive life. So, do all that you do as unto the Lord and discover the satisfying work life you’ve always wanted.
