Anytime workers here of pay 💵, they are very excited. So most workers were happy to hear that this week’s #BGIM was urging employers to pay their workers and not to delay with it in order for God’s blessings to be on their business continually.
As it is said, there are always two sides of a coin. Now, we look at Workers’ side of the coin.
RESPECT YOUR BOSS
Colossians 3:22-23 reads from the NIV
v22. Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.
v23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
The King James puts part of the text as “…obey your masters in all things, NOT AS EYE PLEASERS 👀 as menpleasers…”
It is the moral and religious responsibility of every worker to respect their employers and superiors at work. Some workers just don’t respect their workers. They look at the flaws of their masters and use it as a reason to disrespect their masters.
Some say their boss is not a religious person say a Christian, hence they do not give such bosses the maximum respect they would have given to a Christian boss. Others look at the low education of their boss and don’t respect because they are always talking about big things, looking at other so-called big companies and also looking forward to become the Managing Director of that same company. Some say their boss is not compassionate or generous, so they don’t show maximum respect to them.
But truth is whatever the reason is, you have to respect your boss. The God who gave you employment is that same God that placed you under him. If you disrespect your boss, unknowingly, you are being disrespectful to God Almighty in Heaven. That’s a truth most of us don’t know especially the young people of today anytime we disrespect our bosses and the elders in our community.
The Bible reiterates this point in Romans 13:1-“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
Respect your boss no matter the reason even if your pay has delayed. If you respect, the Good God who sees all you do would open greater doors 🚪 of blessings for you there whereas your colleagues are acting as menpleasers. Don’t be like them who work only when their master is watching.
God is watching 👀, so respect your boss.
