After faithfully serving the same company for forty years, he finally came to the last day of work. For him, it’s a bitter-sweet experience. On one hand, he had to leave the job that he loved so much, but on the other hand, he was glad because he wouldn’t have to deal with any workplace politics anymore. Workplace politics can be brutal; some people simply want to destroy your reputation and job prospect.
Daniel was working in a hostile foreign land, and his enemies wanted to hurt him in a bad way. Let’s ponder the story of Daniel (Daniel 6).
4At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. 5Finally these men said, “We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.” (Daniel 6:4–5 NIV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Could You give me the wisdom to survive workplace politics?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the wisdom to survive workplace politics.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with your loved ones how you survived workplace politics. Give thanks to God at the end of the conversation.
