Summary Statements

¨      Man looks on the outward appearance, BUT God looks at a man’s heart (1 Samuel 16:7b).

¨      It is our responsibility to be diligent and skillful in our work (Proverbs 10:4,5).

¨      Whatever we do, in word or deed, we should do all for God’s glory (1st Corinthians 10:31 and Colossians 3:17).

Principles That Work

1.      Our standard of performance must transcend that of our co-workers and our superiors and be rooted and grounded in personal excellence.

2.      God will hold you accountable for how you use the resources He has given you.

3.      People do put a lot of stock in the outward appearance, so we should be mindful of the way we look, dress, and carry ourselves (discretion, modesty, cleanliness, etc.).
