Col. 3:18-4:1

18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for those who belong to the Lord.19 Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly.  20 Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged.

22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything you do. Try to please them all the time, not just when they are watching you. Serve them sincerely because of your reverent fear of the Lord. 23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. 24 Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.[a] 25 But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites.  4 Masters, be just and fair to your slaves. Remember that you also have a Master—in heaven.


 I work for myself, but I have a boss,  His name is Jesus.  I want to willingly do my work for the Lord, not just for the people I work with.  I need to think that as I sit there counseling others, that Jesus is sitting next to me and I listen for his insights and suggestions.

It really extends into every part of my life!  When I am counseling; when I am co-hosting the New Life radio program; when I am with Jan; when I am with my kids and grandkids.   I don’t think much would change for me–I just need to be more aware of the reality that my boss is Jesus.
