Edifier du Jour-Ephesians 6:5-9(NASB)
5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; 6 not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. 7 With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. 9 And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
It's a little bit difficult to translate this to modern times, but most of the passages about slaves and masters work well with employers and employees. We're supposed to do our jobs and follow the rules even if no one's looking. I'm reminded of the modern parable about stooping at a red light on a deserted intersection at 3AM; the rationalist will ignore it, knowing that there no one there. Wrong-God's there, and He wants us to do the right thing even if no other human's looking. Ultimately, it's God we are serving, and He takes pleasure in a job well done, even if it is a well-washed rack of dishes or a well-mopped floor. The Parable of the Talents comes to mind; the people who did good work with that they were given to do were rewarded-"You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master." Remember that when you have your next bit of grunt work to do. I did a good piece on the Whole Armor of God (verses 11-18) passage back in April, so I decide to pull out this part of the chapter today.
