His eyes are on the workplace
Pastor Mark Jeske
Where does worship happen? Well, in church, of course. In your home, when you sing and pray together. In your quiet place, when you read Scripture and talk to God. But don’t forget about your workplace.
Seriously—God is intensely interested in what goes on in your place of employment. He wants to see how you treat your customers and your fellow employees. He wants to see how you treat your boss and the quality of your work when nobody is watching. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23,24).
Those promises are a great comfort when you work at a place that isn’t fun anymore. Maybe it never was, but it can still be a place of worship for you. Anybody can complain and grumble and mail in a performance. A worker who has decided to be positive and happy and cooperative can infect everybody else to be positive and happy and cooperative.
So whatever you do, work at it with all your heart. Know that God is watching you, smiling at your efforts. You can smile too, since you know that you will get two paychecks—one on payday and one in heaven.
Why can’t they just stop?
Why can’t you just stop drinking? Why don’t you stop getting high? We’re broke because of your gambling! Can’t you see what you’re doing to me and how you’re destroying our family? Why don’t you stop, and why don’t you care?!
If these questions sound familiar, then this book is for you.
