Working Faithfully

Some of us have been working for years.

Work has become a routine and nothing can really surprise us anymore.

We know our line of work and we can carry out many tasks without much thought.

Some of us have slowly become a valuable asset to our organization. We are pleased and proud with ourselves, and at time a bit bossy and sometimes manipulative.

Some of us demand a better treatment from the organization. We are not satisfied with what we have and there are more to what we want.

Although we have more than what we need and are in fact lacking nothing, we want more attention, more love and more of everything.

Some of us are not happy when the new, young and fresh workers are treated too well by the organization. We wish that they would learn things the hard way just like many of us in the past.

I believe in whatever organization we are serving, it is good to realize that we are not indispensable; that the younger generation is slowly taking over our roles and that we will one day retire.

It is good if we can continue to play a contributing role to our organization.

It is good to always try to do our works to the best of our ability.

It is not the number of years or the years of experience that matters; rather it is the willing heart to serve and to sacrifice for the sake of our organization.

Whatever we do, at the end of the day, we must realize that we will have to give an account of our earthly journey to the almighty God.

"Whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant."

Maybe that is the attitude we must have in our organization.

Let us faithfully do our work, cultivate our reputation, and in due time have our reward, whether from earth below or heaven above.
