The good in Good Friday


As we remember the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus on this Good Friday and Easter holiday, you may feel persecuted in your place of employment. No company is perfect and no employee is spotless. Even though you may have had some very hard times with those you work with, try not to point the finger at those you may feel are the Judas like characters you must share time and space daily. Instead, try to follow Jesus’ example with your coworkers, customers and your professional skills.{{more}}

For those who are a bit puzzled or skeptical about the practical wisdom the Bible provides consider the following:

Communications Skills

Remember this one when you are about to speak unkindly of a coworker or gossip.

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29..

Customer Service

When customers get annoying or you don’t feel like working because its Friday afternoon read this. “Whatever you do, you are to work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23


Managers and supervisors must remember they are not superior beings; instead they are servants that should be dedicated to bringing out the best in their employees. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve. . . . Mark 10:45

People Skills

For those who are not able to get along with select coworkers..

“And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven YOU”. Ephesians 4:32

These are just a few brief words of wisdom, if you would like to learn more
