When I first saw today’s nudge, I immediately thought of the old Clint Eastwood movie, “The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly.”
Stephen has pretty well summed up my thoughts on the subject of the good and bad of work. The most difficult part of a work environment (the ugly), is not the work itself, but the people with whom we work. For example, it’s very difficult to get along with a boss or co-worker who is a perfectionist, or one who has a bipolar disorder (I worked with one for two years), so there is a lot of forbearance, longsuffering, and forgiveness that must take place in the work environment (Colossians 3:12-13). It’s not an easy task in working with some folks, thus the need for much prayer, not only for ourselves, but for those with whom we work (Romans 12:12).
