Summary: Our labor for the Lord is always vital.
We cannot also present file of promotion documents and say, Lord, every six months I got promoted and here’s the commendation done given by the CEO of our company.
We cannot do that. What the Lord Jesus Christ will ask us is how well did we live our life here on earth.
Mica 6: 8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
God requires us to do justly, whether we are the boss or not we need to be fair always. Our love must be coupled with mercy not personal interest or lustful desires. We must also walk with humbleness before God and man, because we cannot hide anything from God. Everything lies open before God and it is to Him that we must all give an account of ourselves.
To those who are working just a piece of thought, enjoy your work and dream high. Set aside grudges and don’t expect too much especially for an additional salary. Just do your best and be yourself increase in pay will come as an added blessing in the right time. Do not compare your self to others because it will destroy your eagerness will eat you up soon. But always accept challenges and changes that will help you grow and prove that you are the co-laborers of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please bear in mind that your labor is not in vain. Show others that you are a unique person even in the work place and do not compromise the truth. Always remember that God gave you that job and He has a special plan and purpose for you wherever you are. Put your dependence unto God and have thankful heart and give glory to His Name.
