Faithful Employees

“Trustworthy messengers refresh like snow in summer. They revive the spirit of their employer.”
– Proverb 25:13 (NLT) –

According to NLT Life Application Study Bible, the word ‘messenger’ can also mean ‘employee’
So, this verse highlights the importance of trustworthy employees to help their employers.

What are the criteria of trustworthy employees?
Some criteria include: they are punctual, they fulfil job description and they meet deadline.

Why should we be trustworthy employees?
Simply put, we are grateful for the job.

Let’s just face it. This year is recession year.
Many bosses try their best to bring in sales and cut cost by freezing hiring.
There are plenty job cuts all around.

Let’s imagine ourselves as jobless people.
No job means no money. No money means no hon—– never mind, let us not go there.
In short, life is tough without a job.
Thank God we are still employed.

As Christians, we are called to be a blessing.
That includes blessing our respective employer too.
How do we do that? By becoming a trustworthy staff.

Let’s bless our bosses and revive their spirit, shall we?.
