Colossians 3:22



22 Servants, [doulos] obey [hupakouo] in [kata] all things [pas] your masters [kurios] according [kata] to the flesh; [sarx] not [me] with [en] eyeservice, [ophthalmodouleia] as [hos] menpleasers; [anthropareskos] but [alla] in [en] singleness [haplotes] of heart, [kardia] fearing [phobeo] God: [theos] KJV-Interlinear



22 Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. NASB



Slaves, refers to all laborers in all categories of service to others. Whether voluntary slavery, involuntary slavery, day labor, or hired short or long term employment arrangements, all workers are bound by an obligation to a master, an owner, an employer, a senior supervisor, and so forth.


Everyones primary objective in this life, is to be obedient to Gods will, to advance in their spiritual lives to spiritual maturity, regardless of their circumstances, and simultaneously to work within the system from which they obtain a livelihood.


Workers are not to work just enough to get by, not to brown nose in order to get brownie points or perks from their superiors, not to back stab or attempt to undermine the efforts of someone else, not to just look like they are working, not to simply fill time, not to take advantage of others to your own benefit, and so forth.


Our real master is the Lord.Our real master placed us in the position that we are in.And our real master expects us to work with effort and honesty, until He sees fit to move us to something else.


Unlike our earthly employers, Christ can see everything we do, hear everything we think, knows every decision, motivation, thought and intent of our soul. And as such, Christ has possession of all of the facts of our life in order to give us a fair and honest evaluation. And He knows exactly how we apply doctrine, if at all, to our daily life.


He knows who are the givers and who are the takers, who are the charitable and who are the selfish, who puts out an honest effort and who is the slacker.


While your employer can only fire you for good or even not so good of a reason, while you may or may not pay for the products, services, and things that you receive or benefit from in life, your biggest evaluation in life will come when you stand before Christ, as you certainly will, one day.And there you may explain your reasons of selfishness, possessiveness, laziness, refusal to contribute to Gods plan.


Here on earth you may lose a paycheck or two, or more, but in heaven you may gain or lose an infinite treasure.


To cheat or slack-off in life in order to just get by, or to take because you can, is not worth trading away an infinite fortune.


To work for Christ, in whatever it is that you do from day to day, to contribute to His plan, will gain you blessings both now with your employer or with those with whom you have dealings, and in eternity with God.


God will make it very clear within your mind, the things that you should or should not be doing. Therefore you will never have any excuse for your failures.
