Susan was a Christian, and her coworkers knew it. But how did they know? She rarely mentioned her faith. Her work was top-notch, of course. But her coworkers were sharp too. It was something else about Susan. She clearly was not out just for herself. In a competitive industry, she knew how to share credit: she was for her associates. That quality alone spoke volumes.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. The Thessalonians were so dear to Paul that he shared not only the Gospel with them; he shared his life. He was for them. What about you? Are you for your colleagues? At work, can you share credit? People notice when people care . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.
( I Thes. 2:8)
