September 26

I once had a job that I absolutely loved. This was a management position where I counseled and trained others. There were also office duties, which was not what I signed on for, so I reorganized the office, downsized the paperwork, eliminated, cleaned, got files transferred to the computer, and brought everything up to date. Now that the office part of my job was easier, I could spend more time with people, which was the main thrust of my position. This job captured my heart, unlike any other. I was able to keep all the plates spinning in the air with only a few wobbly moments. After a year, something changed and I began to feel unappreciated and targeted. I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t about me. Even though emotionally, things had gotten harder, I still worked diligently as unto the Lord. This is the key; even if your boss doesn’t have the same qualities as Jesus, you are to serve them well as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that the good you do will be paid back by Him. If this is happening to you, and you are able, look for another job, life is too short to live being tormented by an employer. Ephesians 6:5-9

rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free. Ephesians 6:7-8
