Genesis 39 tells the story of Joseph coming to Potipher's house in Egypt. His brothers sold him as a slave. But he served his master faithfully. God was with him. God blessed his work. Potipher benefited from the blessing. So Potipher began to notice Joseph and promote him.

Work can be a challenging environment. All kinds of people are there. Some are not nice. Some ate poor workers. Some cause problems for everybody.

God is with the believer at work. God will bless you at work. It may not be with promotions; it may be the chance to live for him and even talk about him. We are to work for his glory. Paul said to do everything for the glory of God.

When you work for God's glory in the work place, you work diligently at your assigned tasks. You exhibit the fruit of the spirit in the work place. You love the unlovely, care for the needy and go the extra mile.

When you live out your faith at work, you will be blessed and your employer will be blessed through you. And God will be glorified in you. Jesus said to let your light shine before the men and women in your workplace, and your co-workers will see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

That is your real job.
