This book focuses on how employees should work and follow in contemporary organizations. It begins with the call from Col 3:22-24 for employees to treat work as worship to God and to conduct their work to the best of their ability (Prov 22:29). It then explains how employees should help each other but not to the point of self-defeat (Galatians 6). Employees are then cautioned for the need to be true followers but to know the extent to which being a follower might call them to be committed to both the organization and the leader/manager. This is the concept of Akoloutheo. The rewards of being diligent and faithful employees are conveyed through an examination of the Parable of the Talents. The book concludes with an admonishment to everyone to prepare versus plan for one’s personal life. Managers plan for projects but should prepare for what God asks each of us to do and then to accept the opportunities that God presents to us.
