Matthew 5:16 (NIV) – In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
As we go about our daily routine, we must remember this; the way we do anything is the way we do everything. Our workplace demeanor and attitude; the disposition we carry; the method by which we choose to carry out tasks in the workplace setting are all a representation of who we are as disciples.
We cannot divorce our work persona from our kingdom persona; they are the same in the eyes of the Lord. Knowing this, we must consider our ways. We would be hard-pressed to show the goodness of the Lord in our lives when all people ever associate us with at work is turmoil, strife and confusion. These things greatly dim our light; a light whose purpose is to serve as a beacon of hope in an otherwise dark world. Our work actions are either helping or hindering the cause of Christ. Shine the light.
