“Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare of their slaves.” (1 Tim 6:2)
Do you serve someone who is a fellow believer? You know that God sees you as equals and that he or she has a duty of care, but what should our response be when God places another believer in authority over us?
The Scripture is clear that we should go the extra mile to ensure we are model employees and respect and serve them even more than we would normally do. The other person’s conduct and walk is not our responsibility; it is between him or her and God. Our responsibility is to serve our leaders as we would Christ, to be a model employee, and to respect their authority.
Quick Prayer: Lord, I will especially honor other Christians I work with. Amen.
