You are a Christian. You work for someone who is your boss. Your responsibility is to be diligent to the task, being subject to your leader, showing all good faith.
Here are two statements from Chuck Swindoll on how to live this Christian life. Number one, it takes authenticity and integrity to win a hearing. Number two, it’s impossible to convince anyone of any truth you’re not living.
Barely escaping alive from Shadow Valley, Goliath—now Chuck—relies on the help of a kindly country preacher Pastor Flint and his daughter Cindy. But healing one's physical wounds is not the same as healing a wounded heart. When the bandits from Wild Mountain begin kidnapping the children from surrounding villages, Chuck is called back into action. But will the shadow of his past keep him from facing his future?
The pursuit of success can drag you down and lead you away from God’s Word and Spirit. Only by stepping away from life’s rat race will you begin to experience real success and satisfaction on God’s terms.
Just as a family works best when there is harmony and co-operation, so does a congregation. No parent enjoys dealing with children who misbehave, but ignoring them or giving in to them are not good options. The same is true in the family of God. Throughout the history of the church, there have been those who stirred up trouble and caused dissension. Such troublemakers will always exist. To keep the unity that is so vital in a healthy church, those who habitually and persistently sow discord must be confronted, dealt with, and encouraged to repent.
If you’re dealing with problems caused by your own foolishness, ask God what wise course of action you can take to turn your problems in the right direction. As you seek His wisdom for your decisions and responses to everyday life, the right attitudes and actions will become clearer.
