Office Relationships Series

After a few years of commuting to and from the same office building, there aren’t many new variables that cause an exhilarating rush to skip happily into work every morning. There are the days, however, when alarm clocks are snoozed more than once and a mad rush out of the house in an effort to beat morning traffic sounds all too familiar.

Of course, there is no right or wrong way to start a day. But there are godly ways that the Bible enlightens us to follow throughout our workdays.  One of the most crucial components of godliness in the workplace is in the area of office relationships. Interpersonal relationships in the office can affect mood and behavior in and out of the office, especially if the relationship has gone awry.

It is essential, as growing Christians and career-building professionals, to provide an exemplary model in our hearts at home, at church, and in the workplace by not causing others to stumble spiritually, mentally, or professionally.

While working with other people, we need to demonstrate an attitude and behavior according to the Bible. For as Christians, we are the “light of the world” (Mt 5:14). Our purpose in the workplace is to guide others in a godly way and not to shy away and cover the light within us that God has requested us to shine, due to lack of godly courage. 

In hopes of bringing some mutual enlightenment, this series will be divided into several installments to focus on some core office relationships. Interestingly enough, most of these relationships closely resemble those from the Bible, which creates great grounds for learning.

Let’s kick the series off with the Deceptive Supervisor.
