Relationships At Work...That Work
Scripture Reading: Colossians 3:22-25; Colossians 4:1
Work, Work, Work
For a 50-year working career, the average person will spend over 13 years of their life at their job. That’s a really long time. Chances are you will spend more time at work then you do doing anything else in your life. And yet, most people are dissatisfied with their job. For whatever reason—don’t like their boss, don’t care for their co-workers, want a different career, not enough pay—most people trudge through their work life waiting for the day they can retire, or at least for 5 o’clock to come so they can go home.
The difficulty with all of this comes in the relationships we have with our boss and/or co-workers. If relationships at work are bad, it doesn’t matter what you do; work will be miserable. And yet, this is one of the few things in our work life we have some control over. We can control, to some extent, how our relationships go with those in the workplace. How do we relate better to our coworkers, or to our bosses? As Paul finishes up his comments on relationships in Colossians chapter 3, he challenges slaves and masters to have a better relationship. The modern parallel to this would be our own employer/employee relationship. Join us this morning as we discover how to have “Relationships at Work that Work.”
