Yesterday was National Boss Day.
Maybe you're reading this and thinking about why on earth there should be a National Boss Day. Perhaps you don't like your boss, or have had bad experiences with a boss in the workplace before.
However, I think that bosses have a lot on their plates. Don't be too harsh on them in what you think and say about them to other people. Thinking of my bosses/managers, I wouldn't like to be in their positions.
If you are grateful for your job today, then spare a nice thought or a prayer for your boss.
Maybe you can't bring yourself to be thankful for your job, are you thankful for the money it brings in? The roof over your head? You should always be able to find something to be grateful for.
So, pray for the people in charge over you in the work place. Pray for wisdom and honesty for them. If your boss/manager is a Christian (as mine are) thank God for that, ask Him that they don't lose their faith and that they are always honouring the Lord in all they do.
If you are a boss, you can still pray for wisdom for yourself - God doesn't mind. In fact, He says that if anyone lacks wisdom he should ask for it, because God gives generously to all (James 1:5).
If you are retired, then pray for ex-bosses (not Xboxes!) or any bosses you currently know.
I think I've said enough.
