“Make a point this day to show honor to those you give an account to. Show support to your supervisors, leaders, and authorities. For know that as you do so, you are sowing for yourself a future of favor and peace.”
Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed (1 Timothy 6:1).
The Bible gives many examples of how to treat our bosses or those we answer to on many various levels. Whether it be our boss at work, department supervisors, parents, pastors, or similar authorities, we are to show respect because of the fact that they play some current role in our success. Perhaps you feel you have a boss or supervisor who is out to get you somehow or who is just difficult to work with. Perhaps they are hard to deal with simply because life has been hard on them. Maybe there are some areas where you need to step up your support of them. Sometimes those who lead or supervise just need to feel supported and appreciated by those who they are given the responsibility to govern. We can never see all the factors that bring people to where they are today. You may very well find that a little extra touch of support is all they need. It positions you for favor when you might have otherwise felt unappreciated or even been mistreated in some way. Your purpose isn’t to manipulate them, but rather be obedient to God’s Word and to represent the Christian faith through love. Ask the Lord to give you ideas of how to support and honor your supervisor, boss, or leaders. It is rewarding, and you will be so glad you did!
Father, I commit to show You honor by honoring those You have put in position to supervise over me. Teach me key ways to show them support as the Bible teaches so that I may be a good example as a Christian. In Jesus’ Name, amen!
