Overview

What would Jesus do—on the job? Here, 60 businessmen and women offer professionals fresh insights on how to practically apply biblical principles to their jobs. From maintaining personal integrity, defending your faith, persevering through difficult situations to dealing honestly and fairly with others, each devotional topic directly applies to a challenge encountered in the workplace. A relevant Scripture and question for application helps readers reflect on and apply the pertinent truths they find in that day’s devotion. Rather than compartmentalizing their “work life” and their “church life,” business professionals will be inspired to surrender all parts of their lives fully to the Lord. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how their work matters to God and how their faith can influence every aspect of their professional life.
