A king detests wrongdoing,
for his rule is built on justice.
The king is pleased with words from righteous lips;
he loves those who speak honestly (Pr 16:12–13).
A godly boss delights in righteousness but dislikes wrongdoing. He cannot tolerate the negligence of duty in his sphere of responsibility. He leads with blamelessness and fairness, with integrity and honesty.
He understands that it is God who places a person in positions of authority (Romans 13:1). He recognizes that He is placed there by God to perpetuate godliness.
Our Lord Jesus is the King that rules in righteousness (Isaiah 9:6-7). He hates evil and wants to eliminate it (Psalms 45:7; Hebrews 1:9)--and he will ultimately do it in the future.
As Christians, we aspire to inspire our bosses with our performance. May that be a reflection of our deep desire to make our King and Lord delight in us. He instructs us in His word: whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus--and do it for his glory (1 Corinthians. 10:13; Colossians. 3:16-17)
Happy Wednesday everyone
