As we discuss the Relationship Pillar and this idea of abiding with God at work, the first question has to be…why don’t we do it?
We talked about this question in several discussion groups at last week’s Eight to Five event. Here are some answers:
- Fear - it could cost us something… relationship, $, promotion, job!
- Busyness - #1 reason? We are going 100 mph all day long.
- Enemy - you think?
- Guilt – can’t live up to it; I don’t need that remorse.
- Don’t think about it - literally, we just don’t think about God at work.
What do you see in yourself or others that keeps us from abiding with God at work?
Be thinking about this powerful truth:
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me [abide] and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
