OPA – Other Peoples Agenda
“Then give to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Luke 20:19-26 I heard a conversation from some young ladies about how their boss treated everyone as if they could be replaced. While I understood their frustration the unfortunate reality is that it was true. Their bosses agenda doesn’t have to be their agenda. Just do the work they were hired to do and you don’t get replaced. Keeping in mind that we don’t always get to work in the best environments. Whatever we do, our work, is always done for the glory of God. In this way what we do becomes a ministry in which God’s favor and grace falls on us for our faithfulness in his desire to see us through the situation. That’s God’s agenda!
Whatever your task, put yourselves into it, as done for the Lord and not for your masters, since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
