The new master and slaves association


When we say the Lord’s Prayer we ask for out daily bread. Due to the increase in population hunting and farming became impossible for all to accomplish, so now we have jobs.
The employer is the “master,” who promises to pay you your money needed to go to the store and acquire food to place before you daily. This allows God to provide you your daily bread as you the employee and thus the “slaves” as shown in the Bible.
Ephesians 6:5 – Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. 6 Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. 7 Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. 8 Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free. 9 Masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Don’t threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and he has no favorites.
When you come into work late, when you extend you work break, if you have them, and if you do not perform your job to the best of your ability. You are disrespecting and insulting God. This is why I have stated in the past, it is both faith and works.
So get to your place of employment early. Work with honor and quality, ad with respect. For the salary you receive is your daily bread that is given to you by God. All that you do with this money must be God centered, not self-centered.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: I refuse to contribute


So the day by day continues, yet still he does not see.
In previous posts I mentioned in one way or another the mentality and actions of one of my co-workers. I will add to the painting of the imagery of this man. So in hopes it will help those out there with the eyes to see and the ears to hear.
This man goes about reading the Bible, yet talks about things not found within the Bible. Most at work, both sinner and saint see him for what he is. A sham. A phony. A hypocrite. A lukewarm.
However he sees himself as the “select,” the “chosen,” the “few.”
I once told him about Ephesians 6:5-9, and how when we go to work and how we work is for God. We are the light the living witness of Christ unto the world. His reply: I was ignorant. Not realizing that when he said that he called the Word of God ignorant and so that God Himself was ignorant.
Now that the painting has been made clearer. I will address the new issues.
We are allotted a set amount of time to accomplish our jobs at the place I work at. Each person in his/her own tasks, but sometimes it is required for other to assist in the other persons work.
I have one of the latter jobs. In it the person in question is assigned an hour to make it possible for him to assist me so I can accomplish my assigned duties.
So I check my jobs time to time to make sure I am staying near my limits since each job even though the same has issues that can arise to throw the time needed off.
Well anyway, I saw this job and it was WAY out of range. So I check the time usage. Mine were right where they should be. His contribution six hours over.
He just doesn’t get it.
When you call yourself “Christian” all we do is for God. ALL WE DO!
So when you ride time like this it is not against the co-worker, the employer or the customer that is being abused. IT IS GOD!
We answer directly to God. God is our employer, and when this abuse takes place it is Him we are denigrating.
I refuse to partake in this. I will not contribute to his open insult to the Lord God Almighty.
When possible I will tell him I will not allow him to add to his sins against our Creator. For I honor God and refuse to continue to insult Him.
