Talent at Work (#4): Settling Accounts
Updated: Mar 17, 2020
Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
We have learned so far that a faithful working relationship involves trust for mutual benefit and expectations to diligently multiply what is entrusted to us, in the least amount of time. The next thought is about settling accounts.
Accountability is indispensable for the success of any business relationship.
Sooner or later, a coworker, a supervisor, or a top officer in a company will come to settle accounts. The day will come when we must show the fruit of our labors over a period of time.
Human nature creates in us the tendency to procrastinate. This means to leave things for the last minute. Just as worry is a symptom of lack of trust in the Lord, procrastination is a symptom of unfaithfulness.
The best way to be always ready to settle accounts is by pretending that the Master will come at the end of each workday. Developing the habit of settling accounts with yourself at the end of EACH DAY will keep you faithful-ready.
If we manage to be accountable to ourselves at the end of each day, we will always be ready to settle accounts with any superior, at any time. Don't finish a day without finishing a day.
