The Truth About Pay

“For the Kingdom of Heaven is like the landowner who went out early one morning to hire workers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay the normal daily wage and sent them out to work. “At nine o’clock in the morning he was passing through the marketplace and saw some people standing around doing nothing.So he hired them, telling them he would pay them whatever was right at the end of the day. So they went to work in the vineyard. At noon and again at three o’clock he did the same thing.” Matthew 20:1-5

  • When we assume what has not been agreed on, it is not our boss/job’s problem—it is ours.
  • Wrong expectations in our families are the #1 cause of conflict, but it’s also one of the reasons we can be dissatisfied with our jobs.
  • If you have a problem on the job, church, school, family, etc…go to that person, don’t talk about that person.
  • Being upset because of what someone else is making is called jealousy—and God is still trying to build character in our lives.
  • Our craziness on the job can sometimes be the result of jealousy towards someone else.

How To Better Enjoy My Job

  • I must learn to be content.
    • “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:” Philippians 4:11
    • Contentment is learned and is a byproduct of spiritual maturity.
    • Contentment is not natural, it’s supernatural, and can only come as you realize God is the only true source of meeting all your needs.
    • The main character God wants to build at work is contentment.
      • “Even corrupt tax collectors came to be baptized and asked, “Teacher, what should we do?” He replied, “Collect no more taxes than the government requires.” “What should we do?” asked some soldiers. John replied, “Don’t extort money or make false accusations. And be content with your pay.” Luke 3:12-14
  • Remember that your job is not your destiny.
    • Your simply on a journey, this is not your destination.
      • “So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last.” Matthew 20:16
      • “For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven.” Hebrews 13:14
  • Remember on your job that God wants to use you to build His Kingdom.
    • Our journey while on the job is to allow God to use us to witness to others.
      • “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
    • Discontentment is a spiritual problem; as others witness your contentment you are a witness for Christ.
      • “This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work, just as we told you before. As a result, people who are not Christians will trust and respect you, and you will not need to depend on others for enough money to pay your bills.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
    • When you don’t gossip on your job and you work hard, others will trust and respect you.
      • “And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus, and come with him into the presence of God the Father to give him your thanks.”Colossians 3:17
