Seeking Him Podcast

Holiness in the Workplace

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Your workplace provides a great opportunity to practice holiness.

Man: “Uh, yeah, well… I’m supposed to be working on this big sales report, but I kinda got sucked into a Facebook debate about whether the moon is real or not.”

Nancy: Are you approaching your work with holiness?

Man: I probably spent more time on it than I should have.

Nancy: Here are some questions to help you evaluate:

  • Do you work as unto the Lord—as if He’s your boss? By the way, that question applies whether you work outside your home or in your home.
  • Are you diligent? Do you follow through on what you’ve been assigned?
  • Why do you work? Do you have a hidden desire for recognition or human praise? Are you trying to impress people or to please the Lord?
  • Do you treat other people fairly? Do you treat them the way God treats you?

No matter what’s on your to-do list, remember what we read in Colossians 3:23: “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord, not for men.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
