The Bible tells us to do all things as for the Lord. Can you use this principle to create the perfect resume? With these tips you can please even Jesus!
Bible has answers to all our questions. If you have had problems with employment till this time or wish to boost your career, get those answers and apply them into your life. God is wise and good. He is your Father willing and eager to help you out, but it’s up to you to listen to Him and follow His guidance.
5 things Jesus would want to see on your resume:
1. Being submissive
Respect those who supervise you and guide you. They may not know it all and at times they are not right. But if you know how to respect them, your employers will value you!
"We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
2. Being skillful
You can be hardworking and still failing to succeed. Why is that? Just because you are not skillful. What should be your motto? Become the best in anything you do! Employers value skillful people, who know how to get a thing done well. Strife for excellence! It’s your way to success.
“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” Proverbs 22:29
3. Keep growing
There will never be a time, when you know it all. There is always an opportunity for growth and development. Some people get to arrogant. They think they know it all. And when their employers try to correct them, they get offended. Listen to these corrections and take heed. You always have the room to grow.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace” 1 Peter 4:10
4. Being diligent
The book of Proverbs is full of wisdom from heaven. Here is what it tells us:
“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” Proverbs 14:23
Success never comes to lazy people or those who do not know how to organize themselves well. Watch how you spend your time. What you invest it into. Hard work pays off, while being lazy or idle does nothing good for you.
You know, if you can please Jesus, you can please even the most demanding employer. So, stop being idle and get to work! At this you should work not only hard, but also well.
5. Being generous
Stinginess is not only about the money. Some people are never willing to help their colleagues at work. They never share the knowledge they have. Once you get something share it; make it profitable to others. Let the bread flow down the waters, as the book of Proverbs teaches us.
"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
These five things make you fit to work for God and serve Him. Moreover, they make you fit to work for humans!
