Employees and the Bible

Titus 2:9-10 "Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things."

The "servant" of verse 9 above is an "employee" in our culture. Paul instructed Titus and all preachers thereafter to preach that employees are to be obedient to their employers. In common language that means "Do what you are told to do on the job!" When the boss gives any Christian a job to do, he should be able to have great confidence that it will be done to the best of that person’s ability with or without supervision. What a great testimony that would be if it were true.

Furthermore, the Christian employee is to please his employer well in all things. We should set out to be the best employee on the job in the sight of our employer.

The phrase "not answering again" indicates that employees are to be subject to the employer. In other words "Don’t talk back". It is very Godly to receive instructions, say "Yes Sir" and go do it.

"Not Purloining" means "not stealing". "The U. S. Chamber of Commerce statistics say more than 20 percent of all business closures occur because of employee theft." (source: Sacramento Business Journal). It does not matter if you have not received a bonus or a raise in 25 years, it is still wrong to steal from your employer.

We are to show "good fidelity" (which means "careful or exact observance of duty") as Christian employees. I’m sure every business owner is saying "Amen!" to this command.

It is a well known and very true phase "Good help is hard to find". Let’s make that phrase untrue in the Churches of the True and Living God. When we do, we "adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things". This means we make Christianity look better to those who know us. What a pitiful testimony it is for a Christian to be lazy, or deceitful on the job. How can that person expect to cause others to thirst for Christ? On the other hand, what an opportunity is ours to strengthen our witness by our work ethic.2
