Mark 12:30

Loving God with Everything You’ve Got!

In Mark 12:30, Jesus explains that the greatest commandment is to love God with everything you’ve got – with every part of your being. Heart, soul, mind, and strength. Jesus is calling us to live an integrated life. While we may excel in one or two of these areas, it is the exceptional person who…

Work-Life Balance is a Myth

Debunking the Myth of Work-Life Balance

Do you struggle to find the balance between going above and beyond at work while giving everything you’ve got at home? Those who say they have unlocked the secret to the myth of work-life balance may succeed at selling books, but not much more. The true key is not in finding balance but in living…

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…

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.

The Roadblock to Sharing Your Faith at Work

Speaking the truth in love is Paul’s charge to Christians, to the church of Ephesus – and by extension, us – to make absolutely every effort we can to maintain unity in our community.

Love Why You Work

Fear of God, as Martin Luther taught, is not one of imminent danger. It is more like the fear or anxiety we feel at the thought of disappointing someone we love (i.e., filial fear). If someone is married, they are faithful to their spouse because they love them, not because the Bible teaches against adultery.…

What Makes Us Distinctly Different?

What makes us distinctly different as followers of Jesus? Is it the way we speak? How we fill our weekend? No. Being a Christian at work goes far beyond Bible-verse-emblazoned coffee mugs and promises to pray for people in the throes of overwhelm. These are genuinely good things, but they do not make us distinctly…

Fire Back With Scripture

“Jesus’ refusal was curt: “Beat it, Satan!” He backed his rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: “Worship the Lord your God, and only him. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness.” – Matthew 4:10 (MSG) Temptation has a way of making us question God’s goodness. It started in the Garden and continues today. It paints a…

Do Good Well

In 2 Thessalonians 3:6–13, Paul admonishes the believers in Thessalonica to follow his example and work for their keep. “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat” (v. 10). Our understanding of modern economics supports this: There ain’t no such thing as free lunch! (#TANSTAFL) Yet, this understanding comes up painfully short in…

There Is Synergy In Cooperation

Welcoming outside voices, accepting the help and input from those not on your team or project, might not serve your own vision, but it may very well serve the larger vision of your organization. When you seek out others because they offer perspective different than your own, you’re creating an environment in which synergy can…

Would Jesus Be a Good Employee?

When it comes to living out your faith at work, there is no complicated, magical formula. It’s all about the fruit of the Spirit. Phil Vischer, creator of VeggieTales and CEO, Jellyfish Labs, explains that if Jesus was walking around the workplace, he wouldn’t just be witnessing to everybody – he’d be finishing up that…
