Rifts with Employers

In every job there are times when our ideas are in opposition to administration. For many people, the conflict between those in authority and those in service produces a continual undercurrent of resentment.

The author of Ecclesiastes gives very sound advice. “If the spirit of a ruler rises against you, do not leave your post; for conciliation pacifies great offenses (Ecc 10:4).

In other words, as you continue to remain faithful in your job you have the potential for healing the strained relationship. In cases where your faithfulness does not make a difference, you can begin to seek other employment.
