Given all this, what can be done so the 85% can feel better about going to work every day? Ideally employers can value their employees more by improving working conditions, salary, and opportunities to advance. Legislation protecting workers’ rights and family-centered employment policies can improve the lives of those who labor long and hard on the job.
On Labor Day God’s people can advocate for improved working conditions and better pay for the working people of this world. Even so, these issues have existed for generations and are not likely to be completely resolved any time soon.
While we work together for the greater good of all in the workplace, we can be reminded that ultimately, we are all working for God as long as we are here on the earth.
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance(A) from the Lord as a reward.(B) It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
If your pay is too law and you are stuck in a rut at work, rejoice that the Bible tells us the Lord is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. You have a greater reward coming that is more valuable than silver or gold. If you don’t like your hours, be grateful that God has given you more time on the earth. Every day is precious. If you don’t like your boss, do your best anyway and keep your focus on your real boss – the Lord Jesus. Working for the Lord in everything makes all work more satisfying for God’s people.
