Yep I struggle with this, more than I really want to admit. Surfing the net at work, not doing everything I should for my clients, or not doing things as good as I can. Sometimes just phoning it in. SOmetimes my Christian ethic is not what it should be, and it bothers me even if I am the only one that knows.
1Corinthians 10:31 says pretty clearly “Therefore, wether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Now maybe you will or won’t sing hymns or praise songs while your working, but that is secondary. Do you out perform everyone you work with? Do you work in such a manner that it brings glory to God? Or does your boss think, I’m never hiring a Christian again? Are you working like Jesus is standing across the room?
Saying I am going to and actually doing it are two different things
I keep saying I am committed to do the best job I can, not just for my boss, or my clients. But because I really believe that when Jesus said I am with you always, he meant it. I want my actions, big or little to bring glory to God, and at the same time raise questions in those around me as to why. Yet I fail more than I would like to admit even here among friends.
I want those I work with to ask, “Why do you work so hard?” “Why do you do the extras,?” What’s different about that guy that he tries harder than everyone else. I want to “let your light so shine before men that they see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” Matthew 4:16, also see Collosians 3:17, and 1Peter 4:11
What about you, will you act in such a way that others will notice that there is something about you that is not like everyone else?
