Christian In the Workplace PII How To Deal With Co-workers

Written by Richard Joseph Krejcir

Continued from page 1

You can visualize your personal and work life as a three legged stool. The first leg is a good diet of fresh vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, and lots of clean filtered water, with vitamin supplements and exercise along with a lot of regular rest to help outrepparttar physical fatigue. The second leg is a concentration on attitude and outlook, which will help you withrepparttar 127004 emotional fatigue. The third leg is a good church, Bible study, daily prayer, and devotions that will help your spiritual life. Each one leans againstrepparttar 127005 other. If you let one leg go, you will not be able to stand, or work effectively!

Just a little more rest will be some help to you, but it will not keeprepparttar 127006 stool from falling from under you. Neither would even a weekend of rest and fun. You must develop a plan including all three legs, and be consistent! God desires you to take good care of His temple, your body (1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:19; 2 Corinthians 6:16)!

More Ways To Balance Your Stool and Work

·Be a person who forgives, who lets things roll off his/her back. If you let resentment build, it will break your back. If you let it go, you will be stronger and more effective (1 John 1: 9)!

·Keep your focus on Christ. Look at your work as worship, and as serving Him, not just a labor or chore. Be open for opportunities, and take them as gaining insights and experience so as to be better for Him and others around you! If you get stuck, consider a new perspective. Try to look at your work from a different viewpoint. You cannot always control your situation, but you can control your attitude and respond as our Lord has called us to do!

·Anxiety and stress is often a matter of outlook (Col. 3:23).

·Get yourself involved in a good church (Isaiah 40:31).

·Surround yourself with people who will listen to you and give you godly advice (Heb. 10:25).

·See your work as a means to userepparttar 127007 talents, creativity, and gifts that God has given you (Gen.1: 26-28).

·Let your work give you self-respect and self-confidence (Prov. 22:29).

·Allow your work to develop your aptitude and confidence, patience, forgiveness, values, loyalty, integrity, and be a place to build and develop character (Eccl. 10: 10; Luke 16:10-12).

·Set goals and keep focused (Phil.3: 13-16).

Allow your work to build you up, not tear you down. If it does, and you have tried all of these suggestions, take a career assessment test. Perhaps you are not inrepparttar 127008 career for which you were designed. Remember, we are not to be devoted to our work, but rather devoted to our Savior. Atrepparttar 127009 same time, we are to be diligent and berepparttar 127010 best we can be in our job. The Christian should berepparttar 127011 finest person at their job by means of integrity, godly character, and modeling Christ, regardless ofrepparttar 127012 situation!

What would we have to gain if we put all of our selves and our time in our career, giving up allrepparttar 127013 other aspects of life? Nothing! When I visit rest homes with youth groups, I askrepparttar 127014 youth to get life stories and perspectives fromrepparttar 127015 elderly residents to catch sight of what they have learned in life, and what youth can learn from them. These were very rewarding. With dozens upon dozens of visits over twenty years, we never had anyone say they regretted that they did not spend more time in their career. The regrets expressed, if any, were about losing time with family by being workaholics, forfeiting relationships, and such. All could have been avoided just by adhering to Jesus' simple words in Mark 8:36. Look it up and see for yourself!

Our work ethic will berepparttar 127016 measure of how people see our true character, as well as that of our Lord!
