Workplace Ethical Issues

The Lord's Favor

Nanci Panos

Luke 4: 18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Interruptions

Charlie Fraga

James 4:13-15 

... You who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow… Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”  

Get Out of the Boat

Bill Dalgetty

Matthew 14: 28-30

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Torn

Luke Cahill

Jeremiah 1:7

“… You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

A Stop to the Gossip

Frank Adamo

Proverbs 11:12-13

Whoever derides their neighbor has no sense, but the one who has understanding holds their tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. 

I have a coworker that people like to talk about. When it comes to his job, he is detailed and thorough to the point of irritating his colleagues. He gets the job done, but often takes a long time to finish a task.

Peace and Reconciliation

Steve Smith

Romans 12:18

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

As a realtor, I often run into conflicts between buyers and sellers in the course of purchasing a home. In one recent transaction, a buyer had completed her due diligence and closed on a home that had been substantially remodeled in an older section of the city.

What If?

Louis Grams

Isaiah 43: 19

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

What if every Christian realized they have truly been given the power of the Holy Spirit to transform their workplaces and their eyes were opened to the impact of those workplaces on the world?
