Equality

“And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.” (Eph 6:9)

In a company, there is usually an hierarchy. At the top is the leadership in the C-suite, followed by managers and mid-level leaders down to those who do the real work and then the seemingly more menial roles of packing, serving, or cleaning.

Every link in the chain that is in every company is critical for its success. From the strategy makers to the parcel wrappers, sales to marketing, warehouse to IT, all are important for the company to succeed.

So it is with God. He sees us all equally. CEO and cleaner, manager and sales assistant are all equal in His mind. So how should we treat each other?

Quick Prayer: We are all equal in Your eyes, Lord. Amen.

What Can You Receive?

“To this John replied, ‘A person can receive only what is given them from heaven.’” (Joh 3:27)

All we have and all we are comes from the hand of the Father. All we achieve and receive comes from heaven. No one can boast and say that they have achieved this and that, for without God we would have nothing.

A gift can only be of value to a person who is willing to receive it. What is the position of our heart when it comes to receiving His gifts at work? If we assume that we are to operate in our own strength at work and that God is not really interested, there is a consequence. There will be gifts He has to give us that we do not receive because our hearts and prayers are not positioned to receive.

Quick Prayer: All I have is from Your hand. Amen.
