Today, I have a heated argument once again with my Boss.
It is because I don’t like him, really, and I don’t like receiving feedback from him. Moreover, I believe I have my point so I have the rights to fight for it. It’s my character, I have to fight or perish.
Where does this hostility towards him came from? It came from the fact that he is a very inconsiderate person. Someone who’s no respect of others. Someone who will drive you crazy and made you hate your job. And oh, how many of my friends have gone because of him.
That is true however, I would like to listen to what the Bible has to say about this before hatred engulfs me and lead me away from the character God wants me to have. I want the Lord to minister to my heart and lead me to understand.
I’ve listed here the tips and verses that’s helping me in times like this:
#1. Tame your tongue.
”In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” Isaiah 30:15.
#2. Learn to ignore insult.
“Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.” Proverbs 19:11
#3. Step back and examine yourself.
“How many are my iniquities and sins? Make known to me my rebellion and my sin. – Job 13:23
#4. Remember to live peaceably with all man.
“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Avenge not yourselves, beloved…” Romans 12:18
#5. Battle on your knees.
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless those that curse you, do good to those that hate you, and pray for those who speak evil about you, and persecute you…” Mathew 5:44
#6. Learn to be humble.
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” – Ephesians 4:2
#7 Learn to respect authority.
“Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” Mark 12:17
“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” Romans 13:1-7
#8 If all fails, go to God.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrew 4:16
Friends, lucky are we to have a good Boss who can understand and who will care for us. But most often, we will have a hostile Boss who will do everything in their power to oppress us.
So return in this post and study every verse. May these Words minister to your heart as it is to me so that when the time comes that you will face him again… you are spiritually ready for the battle.
