A good gauge on how we represent God is to take an honest look at how we represent our own self on a job. Do our actions reflect what Jesus would do? How do we conduct ourselves when the boss is away? Remember, our Lord is ever present in our lives.
How do we present ourselves to our best friends when new potential friends come into the picture? Do we suddenly put our best friend on the back burner while trying to impress new people in our lives? Remember, we do not know these new people but our best friend sticks closer than a brother.
What about family members who have always been there for us? Do we visit them when they are older and need us? Do we call them? Is it possible we buy a device for them to virtually visit with us while we are pursuing new people and hobbies in person?
Let’s not forget God. He is available every hour of every day. Is it possible we are too busy to fellowship with others for one hour each week to honor Him?
God loves each of us and desires to speak to us. His word lasts forever and learning what He wants us to do will not only allow peaceful fellowship with Him, it will also save us from a multitude of hardships that could blindly overtake us. Taking jobs, friendships and time with God for granted is like throwing precious gold into a rushing water.
Psalm 19:9-11 New Living Translation (NLT)
Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.
