For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6 NIV)
To perform our jobs effectively we utilize our training and the formal knowledge we have gained through higher education. However, in school we do not learn how to develop our mental attitude. Some of our coworkers may even have a negative mental attitude: they may lack confidence or allow personal biases to interfere with their working relationships. Others develop motivation and a positive mental attitude by focusing on material wealth. God has provided us with something superior than money: His son Jesus Christ, who is the word. By accepting Jesus as our savior we have understanding of the Bible, our guideline for daily life. The wisdom of the Bible provides us with insight and practices which shape our mental attitude. We are able to enhance our natural skillset and training by applying wisdom in the workplace.
Prayer-Father, I thank you for having mercy on mankind and for sending your son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. I praise you for saving me and for giving me your word to live by. Help me to use wisdom in my work today. Amen
