What does God require of us in these Commandments?

Share |

God requires that we be content with the circumstances into which He has placed us. He requires that we faithfully help our neighbor and encourage everyone to remain firmly in that place and to serve in that calling which God has provided for him.

1 Tim. 6:6: Godliness with contentment is great gain.

Luke 16:10: He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much.

Matt. 25:21: Thou hast been faithful over a few things; I will make thee ruler over many things.

Phil. 2:4: Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Assignment: Read Gen. 1:39: Joseph demanded that Potifar’s wife remain faithful to her husband. The Epistle to Philemon: Paul returned a runaway slave to his master. Discuss: Is it permissible to change one’s place of employment and to improve one’s unfavorable circumstances? Is it right for an employer to dismiss faithful older employees and hire new ones?
