The Christian Public Servant – “foolish enough”

Christ at work2

April 26, 2918 – Thursday

Reading

Psalm 14:1 [ESV] The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.

Reflection

A friend once debated the president of a national atheist society about the role of God in society. While the atheist tried to get off track, showing the hypocrisy of many Christians, my friend focused on what is important: God created us, and if we stay close to Him, we will do good.

All humans are made in the image of God. The value of human life is established because of this fact. When God is taken out of the equation – taken out of the philosophy of causation – humankind is left to itself to create values with its own meaning of existence. We create gods to replace God. Human chaos and devaluation of life results when we believe there is no God.

Today remember, God exists. He exists in your life, including your work-life. Do not create your own gods at work. Do not deny the one true God is at work in your workplace. Seek only God when you go to work today, and when you travel back home tonight. If you are foolish enough to deny God, only chaos will result. Only corruption will prevail – in your work and in your heart – and you will not do good.

Today at work, do not be like that atheist. Do not be foolish enough to deny God is real. No good will come of it.

Prayer

Father, at work today, and throughout my life, I proclaim You made me! I proclaim You exist! In Your Son’s name, I pray. Amen.
