"One of the things it means to love others at work is to have the best interest of those you work with at heart. If you are a teacher, seek the good of your students. If you are a manager, seek the good of your employees. If you are a consultant, seek the good of your clients," writes Matt Perman at FaithVillage.


When we develop a relationship with Christ, we want to grow like Christ in word and deed. We want to develop Christ-like character. However, as sinners saved by grace, we approach ethical growth knowing that, compared to Christ, "all our righteous acts are like filthy rags" (Isa. 64:6). We act ethically in order to glorify and imitate him, but we humbly understand that we will never be him. We act ethically in response to the One who acted far more ethically than we can fully grasp.
