America Works Best When It Works According To Christian Values

“Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people, because you know that you will receive your inheritance from the Lord as the reward. Serve the Lord Christ. For the one who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there are no exceptions.” Colossians 3:23-25 NET


The desire for and quality of work in America are becoming increasingly poor. Corruption increases, beginning with our government leaders who have become millionaires through their payoffs for favors to our local businesses taking advantage of the aged, poor, and ignorant. America works well when America holds to Christian values. Beginning in our homes, we are to teach our children to work as to the Lord, as if He were to inspect our performance. This means working diligently, thoroughly, and with excellence. It asks what is the best I can do rather than what is the least I can do. It is training our children to do chores without pay so that they know how to work properly when they work for pay. It is working with integrity and honesty, treating all the same, whether rich or poor because Jesus was rich as God and poor as a servant of men. God will hold all accountable for their obedience to His will recorded in His word. Ignorance of His commands is no excuse for disobedience to His will. The judgment of the Christian is loss of reward and poverty in heaven. The judgment of the nonChristian is to be cast forever in torment and suffering in hell. The goal of our work should be to make Jesus look good before men. People should receive our product or service and praise God for excellence. It has never been easier for Christians to show Jesus in the workplace. The only question is will Christians work for Jesus or work like everyone who doesn’t know Jesus?
