Pray, too, that we will be rescued from wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer.” (2 Thessalonians 3:2, NLT)


In your daily work life, do you ever deal with people who are unreasonable, who don’t think logically, who never try to understand the context of a given situation, and who cannot seem to draw accurate conclusions from the facts?

A good deal of our workplace stress, anxiety, and frustration is due to unreasonable managers, employees, customers, suppliers, and others with whom we interact. “I want what I want, when I want it, how I want it, for the price I want it.” I sometimes wonder what type of culture we have become.

I think the apostle Paul was exasperated by unreasonable people, too. I think it upset his soul, and weighed heavy on his mind.

The question for today is: “are you a reasonable person or do others see you as ‘wicked and evil’?”

If you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit lives within you. He is a spirit of power, love, and sound mind. The more the Holy Spirit lives in you, the more reasonable and loving you become.

If the Holy Spirit is telling you that you’re an unreasonable person, consider how this affects your workplace ministry. Being a reasonable person will build your credibility, strengthen your relationships, and ultimately bear a lot more Godly fruit!

Listen to the Holy Spirit this Wednesday. Examine yourself. “Pray, too, that you will not become an unreasonable, wicked, or evil person.”


Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!
