One Process That Should Never Be Standardized

There is no scope creep when it comes to God’s plan for you. He’s the one who called you, and He’s the one who’s going to see you through. Paul closes his first letter to the church in the city now known as Thessaloniki with an exhortation. “May God himself […] sanctify you through and…

When you feel threatened, don't waste the oxygen.

Save the Oxygen and Follow Christ

Sometimes it’s easier to see a speck of sawdust in someone else’s eye than it is to see the plank in your own (Matthew 7:3). It’s human nature. When you feel threatened by the perceived success of a coworker or the fear of corrective action from a supervisor, warranted or not, it is easier to…

Share the Joy of Faith, Not the Methods

Many of us may feel pressure to perform in the workplace, in relationships, and even in our spiritual lives. But faith is not performance driven. When it comes to living out your faith, to integrating it into all of life, don’t worry about performing. You don’t need to be on display. There is no yearly…

Be Relevant

Is Jesus Relevant Anymore?

When our words or actions distract and get in the way of people who need Christ’s message of hope and freedom, we need to check ourselves.

Philippians 3:12

Spiritual Maturity Requires No Resume

Paul’s writing in the New Testament pulls no punches. And his brutal honesty about his own shortcomings and colored past serve as encouragement for us all. We DON’T need to have it all together to be effective in building the Kingdom of God. A well-written resume proves nothing more definitively than one’s ability to write…

Loving God with Everything You’ve Got!

Is Karma Biblical?

You’re probably not the type to seek revenge when someone wrongs you at work. But doesn’t it feel good when they finally get what’s coming to them? Well, that’s the problem with the notion of karma – it’s just not biblical. God instructed the Hebrews coming out of Egypt not to “seek revenge or bear…

Why Do Some Compliments Fall Flat?

Loving others at work goes far beyond topping off the Keurig with water and making it a point to say good morning each day. Loving others at work puts to the test our commitment to modeling the character of Christ. Jesus listened. And Jesus spoke up. Do you speak up when people gossip with you…

Love Without Condition

From enemies and neighbors to the foreigner and stranger, the Bible teaches us to love without condition. Our ability to love is a demonstration to others that we are followers of Jesus (John 13:35). 1 John 4:8 is pretty straightforward. If you know God, you love. Nowhere in Scripture does it say who not to…

Why Can’t You Find the Perfect Mentor?

The problem with seeking out the perfect mentor is that, outside of Jesus, that person does not exist. The key to finding a mentor is to find someone who is really good at what they do in an area in which you desire growth. This person doesn’t need to be a boss or someone who…

How to Move Past Offense

Part of learning to love is investing time to discover the triggers, land mines, and wounded areas of others in order to avoid causing further harm.

Winning Without the Credit

Servant leadership has been an important topic in the workplace for many years. Jesus modeled selfless service and called his followers to do the same. His words were equally countercultural then as they are now. It’s easy to do something nice and show you care for others. But serving is not servanthood. Jesus calls us…

Spare a Compare

The value of our work is not measured relative to what others have to offer. When you’re working for God, you produce independent goods. So why do we fall into the comparison trap? There is room for everyone to win in God’s economy because we serve a God of abundance. So don’t let someone else’s…

Community Without Condition

God loves unity. There’s no doubt about it. But it can be so hard to get along, especially when working with others with whom you share nothing in common outside of your office space. Even if you work with others who love Jesus, the way they approach Him might look a little different, even weird…
