God’s Communication Plan

It’s GOD @ WORK WEEK here at GUWG, where we’re taking an in-depth look at what the Bible says about the wonderful world of work.

Today’s topic: COMMUNICATION. Almost nothing is more important in the workplace.

Here are five basic principles straight out of God’s Word to help guide your workplace discussions. Start using ‘em today.

God at Work

It’s GOD @ WORK WEEK here on GUWG, where once a year we take an in-depth look at what the Bible says about that one little word: “work.”

There’s no better place to start than here:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. (Colossians 3:23)

This verse comes in handy whenever I’m doing something I don’t particularly like, which is approximately every 3.8 seconds.

Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.

Here’s today’s prayer suggestion. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you pray through it and make it your own.

It Is Well

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

Everything seemed to be going well for Horatio Spafford. He was a successful lawyer and businessman and had a young family of seven.

But then everything changed.

Thoughts to Think

Whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable–
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–
think about such things.
(Philippians 4:8)

This is a great verse to keep in mind. Literally.

Fill your head with things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy. If a thought doesn’t fit one of those categories, don’t think it.

Be Still

Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10)

When was the last time you just sat there?

Doing nothing?

Being still?
