No matter where Christians go – we sort of seem to stick out, including at work.
Being a Christian in the workforce is more than just talking about Jesus. Our work ethic must be strong with integrity. We must treat our neighbors with compassion and love.
“What about the coworkers and managers we cannot stand?”
That is a great question. I get that there are some people we are just not going to get along with. Some people just rub us the wrong way. The first thing to remember is you are not there to make friends – you are getting paid to get tasks done. Focusing on quality work should be more important than pleasing others. If someone is crossing boundaries, and you cannot avoid a situation – we can respectfully tell someone that some things are not tolerable. Remember that it can be a healthy balance between staying quiet yet being assertive to accomplish goals.
When we pursue a life of righteous – we are representing our beliefs to the best of our ability.
