Godly Principles of Work

Yesterday, Pastor Jason offered 8 Principles that help us remember that we are working unto God. Feel free to print these off and put them in your office as a reminder that whatever you do, or however things might be you are doing your work for God.


Work to please GOD first, not man. (Colossians 3:23-24)

23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. -Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV)


Be Honest (Psalm 15:1-3)

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill? 2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; 3 who does not slander with his tongue  and does no evil to his neighbor,  nor takes up a reproach against his friend; -Psalm 15:1-3 (ESV)


Submit and Honor (1 Timothy 6:1)

Let all who are under a yoke as bondservants regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be reviled. -1 Timothy 6:1 (ESV)


Remember the Golden Rule (Luke 6:31)

And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. -Luke 6:31 (ESV)


Do not Grumble or Complain (Philippians 2:14-15)

14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, -Philippians 2:14-15


Do not love money (Ecc. 5:10)

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity. -Ecclesiastes 5:10 (ESV)


Plan for the Future (Proverbs 21:5)

The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. – Proverbs 21:5 (ESV)


Expose Fraud and Darkness (Ephesians 5:11-13)

11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, -Ephesians 5:11:13 (ESV)
