Good Work Ethics Are Divine and True Representation of God


If you’re a believer, no matter who your boss is at work, ultimately, you’re working for God. Whether or not anyone else sees what you do, God sees you; and he doesn’t want you to waste the time and resources of your employer.

Maybe you hate your job. 
Maybe you think you’re underpaid. 
It really doesn’t matter. 

The scriptures say you have to do more than just the minimum required. God calls you to give your best. That’s what integrity encompasses. 

You may know someone who only works hard when the boss is watching. 
You may see someone who takes company supplies home from the office, which is a form of stealing. 
You may work with someone who takes extra-long breaks every day. 
You may know someone who consistently comes in late and leaves early.

Now, God compares this kind of work ethics to vandalism!! 
Proverbs 18:9 says, “Slack habits and sloppy work are as bad as vandalism” (The Message). 
The Living Bible translates the same verse this way: “A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things”. 

God considers it a serious sin when we don’t give a full day’s work for a full day’s pay. Even if no one else at work gives their all, followers of Jesus should just do so because we represent God and the divine mandate. 

When you work as if you’re working for God, he will bless your integrity. And yes, your employer will most likely notice your commitment to the success of the company, and that may lead to financial blessings and rewards. But most importantly, you will grow spiritually as you work in obedience to God.
