The scripture for today, October 31, is 1st Corinthians 10:31 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
How is your everyday life while around other people? What kind of employment do you have? Secretary, engineer, manual labor, going to school, teaching school, keeping your home, watching your children?
Some jobs are exciting, some are boring. Some require decisions, some require none. Some can involve a little bit of misrepresenting the truth. Some may be under a boss who is mean. Some may be among fellow employees who shirk their duties and try to get by with doing as little as possible. Some may be among people who steal from the company.
Always remember that, wherever you are, that is God’s assignment for you in this universal battle between Good and Bad. You must do whatever you do in your daily life as good and honestly as possible.
Will others notice? You bet they will! Will they resent you? Maybe. Will they blame God for the way you act? Deep down the resenters probably will. But at least it will make them think about God.
Then some day when they have a problem they are desperate to work through but cannot, who will they turn to? You. And God.
Be courageous. Stand firm. Do the right thing. And ultimately God will be glorified.
