How Do You Love Your Neighbor At Work?

Matt Perman
February 12, 2024

Matt Perman helps us think through this question by theologically framing it with Scripture. God has prepared work for us to do:

"10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10 (ESV);

and our motives should be to care for others as ourselves:

"14 Let all that you do be done in love." 1 Corinthians 16:14 (ESV).

"Love expresses itself in action. We should look to apply it in the specific context in which we find ourselves. In our jobs, there are three particular things that we can do to love our neighbor. These are especially suited to the nature of the workplace, where we need to care about making sure we serve others in a way that also brings value to our organizations. This is the point of business, after all."
