5 Minutes a day / 5 Days a week
Prov 19:1, 4 (NLT)
1 It is better to be poor and honest than to be a fool and dishonest.
4 Wealth makes many "friends"; poverty drives them away.
Verses one is totally against what the world says today.
The world say's that you should be rich, and it will make you happy.
Verse four is also very true for the world today.
When people have money they have so many so-called friends. But when it's gone, so are their friends.
So how do we apply this to us today?
First off, think about your job, you may not make a lot of money, but are you honest with the money you do make?
Do you take a little extra long lunch being paid for this time when you should be working?
What about extra breaks, or getting to work late or leaving early?
Do you do an honest days work giving your best, regardless of how much you make?
Col 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
1 Peter 2:12 having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
1 Cor 4:12 (NLT) We have worked wearily with our own hands to earn our living. We bless those who curse us. We are patient with those who abuse us.
At work today, don't think about it, as you are working for your boss or your company, but think of it as working for the Lord.
God doesn't love you because of how much money you have.
After all, didn't God give you the ability to do the job you are doing?
You may not make many friends being honest in your work place. Just don't expect them to be honest and godly if they're not Christians.
Just let them see Jesus in you, after all He is a friend that will never leave you or forsake you, regardless of how much money you have or earn.
Matt 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
