Knowing that we are serving God when we work under an inconsiderate boss makes life easier, but it takes practice to remember this truth. If we knew that we would receive a million dollars for each year served, would we be able to tolerate the stress a little more?
When we are treated unjustly, God takes note of it and reserves a special reimbursement for us in heaven. God said you can serve unjust employers when you “know that from the lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ” (Colossians 3:23-24). God pays great dividends (Romans 8:18).
