Watching a recorded episode of Undercover Boss…and I just love it. It is such a positive show, always makes me cry. I love how the leaders get in the trenches with the employees and get a taste of what life is like for them…and at the end, how they always promote and bless the good employees, and deal with the bad ones.
A good reminder that God is watching us too, you know, He is the ULTIMATE Undercover Boss. Like the leaders in the show, He too humbled Himself, came from the Kingdom of Heaven to live and walk among us. So He understands.
Makes me think of Joseph, how hard he worked, was promoted and demoted…but eventually was blessed to become a blessing. We too, if we do not grow weary in doing good, in due time, will also reap a harvest.
Employees, do what you’re told by your earthly bosses. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your the Ultimate Boss, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Boss you’re serving is Christ. The sullen employee who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work.
