|SCRIPTURE: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if He does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up. (Daniel 3: 16-18 NIV)|
There is no other way. We may be threatened with termination of our employees so be it. We must obey God first because His laws are higher than our laws or any directive our bosses might give us. Now, let us serve our bosses well, and be ten times better (Daniel 1.20) than our peers in the quality of our work product. But also we should resolve to never defile ourselves by disobeying God.
Trust in God’s sovereignty is more important than pleasing our bosses. Holding all that we have including our job, with an open hand is equally important. Let us place our trust in God for our future even when our future is full of threats from our difficult bosses about losing our job or making sure we never find work in our industry again.
God is able to make all things work together for our good (Romans 8.28).
