The Message Board

I want to keep God as the center of my work life, but I don't want to look like a 'spiritual kook'. Any suggestions?

Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

You can bless people merely by precept and example. You can follow and practice biblical principles without being boisterous, or out of control.

Operating in love, and kindness can reflect your relationship with Jesus. Quietly offering to pray for troubled coworkers, or simply asking “How can I pray for you”, then praying to your self privately for them at a later time.

Also, quietly sharing the word through tapes, cd’s or dvd’s etc. These things can be invaluable to those around you while you remain a productive member of that company’s staff.

You can keep him at the center and be a witness at the same time. Thanks for your question.— Charles Jenkins

“God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth.”

How do you manage working in an ever-changing corporate environment and maintain your morals and values?

We live in a ever changing world. Our environments change and sometimes the particulars within them. These changes are external. But, convictions, morals, and values are internal. You can not allow the instability of the external to create instability in you. In the bible Isaiah 40:8 says, “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of God stands forever.” We get our moral practices and value systems from a book we call the bible (theword of God). Morals and values don’t change, people and environments change. You don’t have to beat somebody else in the head with your convictions, while you don’t have to let environmental changes change you. If you would like, you can constructively with love share your morals and values as others share their’s. Some will except and some will reject. Just don’t be overwhelmed. I know it’s hard, but if you ask God for wisdom, direction, and strength, He will give it to you.Thanks for your question.— Charles Jenkins

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

How do you deal with an irate manager?

Unfortunately, you can not control the people you work for or with.

The only person you can control is you. When you are subordinate you only have three options; bring it to the attention of the person and/or their superior, adjust yourself appropriately, or leave.

Once you know who you are dealing with, you must internally condition yourself not to take their actions or statements personally.

Tell yourself for as long as I am here, this is who I am dealing with and I must recondition me or be a miserable me.

Also, pray for your boss, give him/her ministry resources (tapes, booklets, small gifts, etc), to encourage him/her.

Proverbs 25:21-22 says, “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the Lord will reward you. Bless your boss and expect a reward.

Thanks for your question.— Charles Jenkins

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

How do you stimulate morale among people?

Stimulating morale among a team is done best when interfacing with individuals.

Take time to positively celebrate your team members. Share your goals and how they are needed to accomplish them.

Show concern for their personal lives. Solicit insight even if you can not use it. Tell the individual I need you, value you, depend on you.

Tell them you appreciate them, and feed off of their energy. If you have enthusiastic individuals, you will definitely have an enthusiastic team. Thank you for your question.— Charles Jenkins

“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
