The scripture for today, June 7, is Ephesians 6:7 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Serve whole-heartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.”
God had just previously said that we were to obey our earthly masters (bosses). But, as hard as you try, sometimes what you may be told to do is very hard to do, especially if your boss is rude, or someone was promoted ahead of you, or you feel like s/he is being a “slave driver.”
At times like those, do what is asked of you anyway, knowing that you are really doing it for God. The next verse says, “because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does whether he is slave or free.”
What you do as an employee in a difficult situation does not go unnoticed. God sees and God will reward you.
