Serving in the Workplace


In the book, How to Be the Greatest in God’s Kingdom, there is a quote in the section titled Serving in the Workplace that says, “They (employer) should not have to look after the company when you are around. When you are on the job, the boss or owner should be able to sleep at night. They should know that you will do your job and take care of the company just as well or better than they would themselves. They should be able to leave at a moment’s notice without the company missing a beat. The company should stay on course of success with you at the helm.”

I thought about that a lot because I used to arrive to work later than everyone else and was usually one of the last ones there. As far as I know, there are no cameras in the office. That means they trusted me not to steal from people’s desks. And if I won’t steal from my co workers, then I won’t steal from my employer.
