Leader and follower?

Exodus 5:6-8

‘That same day the Pharaoh gave his order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the people. “You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw for making bricks; let them go gather their own straw. But require them to make the same number of bricks as before….”

Nothing has changed. People in power making life difficult for those with no power is a familiar story. Both in life and the work place. But instead of dwelling on those that can make our lives difficult, we should turn our focus to the one that can make it easier. God. He took care of the people of Israel and He’ll take care of us. We will enter the kingdom of heaven as equals, no CEO or world leader will be first in line. All of that power and self-importance will be left behind. It won’t go with us. So, whether we are in positions of power or not it seems pointless to toil away on this earth (in the limited amount of years we have on it) trying to prove something that will ultimately mean nothing! Instead, let’s behave in the way God wants us to behave regardless of our place in the corporate world. Loving, encouraging, respectful, honest, understanding and humble. The list goes on but those words even things out. We work with each other, respectful of each of our positions, but we work for God.

Pray with me

Heavenly Father, be with us through our struggles. Whether we’re leaders or those following the lead. Give us respect for each other and help us to remember that you have the greatest power and that it’s you we work for. May we be joyful in the way we work together forever glorifying your name – Amen!
