HOW TO BE A GODLY EMPLOYEE

(based on the 10 Commandments)

1. Trust in God only.

Trust in no one but GOD. People will disappoint you. God created you and has
a wonderful plan for your life. He is too good to do wrong, and too wise to
make a mistake. Let His peace abide in you. (Proverbs 3 :5-6)

2. Worship God only.

Don’t make your career, your company, or your boss a god. If you do, you
will provoke Him to jealously and will end up fighting Him. In fact, He may
hinder you from achieving what you want until you are broken of the
idolatry. (Exodus 20:5).

3. Use God’s Name Reverently.

Don’t swear!! Clean words come out of a clean heart! If your co-workers know
that you are a Christian, but they hear the Lord’s Name used in vain, or
cursing and swearing from your mouth, you will give the appearance of being
a hypocrite. (Matthew 15:17-19).

4. Work Six Days and Rest on the Seventh.

Before you beg for more vacation time, ask yourself a few questions, “Do you
honor the Sabbath?” God has already given you 52 days of time off that
equates to seven weeks. “Are your expectations for work, vacation, and
retirement realistic?” By resting one day a week, you can avoid burnout.
(Genesis 3:17-19).

5. Respect and Obey Your Boss.

You should respect and obey your boss, because you don’t know what it’s like
to be in their shoes. Plus, your ultimate boss is the Lord. Serve Him
faithfully on the job, and He will bless you. However, if your boss commands
you to do something illegal or immoral, you must make a stand and obey God
rather than man. (Ephesians 6:5-8).

6. Protect and Respect Human Life.

Emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual manipulation, abuses and violence
have no place in the workplace…or any place. You do not have the right to
use and abuse your boss, co-workers, employees, customers, or suppliers. (1
Thessalonians 3:1-2).

7. Be True to Your Spouse.

If you are not getting the kind of attention that you feel you deserve at
home, it’s common to seek it with someone at work. Honor your wedding vows
by avoiding company romances! They are very tempting, very real, and very
common. They are also very wrong and very destructive. (Matthew 19:8-9).

8. Do Not Take What Belongs to Others.

Stealing at work can take many forms. You can choose to steal materials,
money, time, productivity , and joy from your employer and others. Do not
remove your integrity by stealing. (II Corinthians 7:1-2).

9. Do Not Lie About Others.

Do not fabricate stories about your boss, co-workers, and spread gossip for
the sake of company politics. You are here to be the salt and the light, not
the pepper and the darkness!! Truth always rises to the surface, and
eventually you will be ashamed and rebuked if you lie. (II Peter 2: 10-13 ).

10. Be Satisfied With What You Have.

Contentment doesn’t mean that you cannot pursue God-given goals, but it does
mean that you are content with what He has provided you with, day after day.
Contentment is a rare quality in today’s culture, but it is extremely
liberating! Materialism, striving for rank , backstabbing, and discontent
lead to emotional, mental, financial, and spiritual bondage. (I Timothy
6:6-11 ).
