There was an official who worked very faithfully and sincerely in an office. He also lived a true Christian life and accomplished all his duties and had a good reputation and this made the people who worked in a slipshod manner over there, hate him. So, they started to trouble him and some higher officials gave him heavy workload on purpose. They also tried to stop him from attending church services on Sundays by putting some stumbling blocks on the way. But with divine help and with much patience, he overcame all those obstacles. He accomplished all his tasks without having to dispute with anyone. In the course of time, these officials found out his true characteristics. Then, they had so much of faith in him that they said, “There is no need to review the important files cleared by him.” They had so much of confidence in him that they started to consult him even in their personal matters and in the end, told him, “We will do as you advised.” Thus, they held him in high esteem. Likewise, those who opposed him earlier out of their ignorance also gave the testimony, saying, “His love is quite unique. Now we know that he is a true Christian.”
As this faithful Christian officer flourished in the same job place where he was once disgraced and humiliated, you too stay righteous wherever you are. Very truly, God will cause you to flourish and be honoured. The Bible says, “The tent of the upright will flourish” (Proverbs 14:11). Beloved, the Lord desires that you should lead a righteous life and walk in upright ways, everyday of your life. Why does He want so? He loves to see you flourish in every area of your life. Whatever comes to your hand, do it with your best strength. At the end, you would be lifted. A flourishing end awaits you and not humiliation!
