Colossians 4 (ESV)
4 Masters, treat your bondservants justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.

This verse should have been included in yesterday’s text, but it didn’t make it.  But there really is a lot to say here about this text.  Paul does not concern himself only with servants or employees. Employers also have a duty not to take advantage of employees. Instead they should offer a just wage, proper benefits, and adequate rest. In contemporary societies, many of these benefits are required by government regulations. But how much better when Christian employers treat their employees well for the Lord’s sake, knowing that they too have a Master in heaven.

I pray: O Lord, help me to treat all those around me, even those who are my servants and employees with respect and Christian love and to not take advantage of them.  Amen.
