Encouragement at Work
â€œTherefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.â€ 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
According to the U. S. Department of Labor, the number one reason people leave their jobs is because they do not feel appreciated.
The Gallup organization reports that one poll found that 65% of Americans reported receiving no recognition for good work in the past year.
Wow! Almost seven out of ten people last year were not once told â€œthank youâ€, â€œgood jobâ€, â€œI appreciate thatâ€, â€œyou made a differenceâ€.
â€œA cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.â€ Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
With a crushed spirit at work, is it any wonder why most people live for the weekend? Or why people donâ€™t feel like taking the initiative? Why should they, will it even matter?
Godâ€™s word tells us that we are made in His image and it is He who gave us our talents, abilities and creativity. So when we acknowledge a co-worker, our spouse or our children for work well done using the abilities God gave them, we are not only lifting them up we are praising God for His work.
