opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure
you are respectful to your employer and set a good example

by congratulating them in their good times and offering
to pray for them in their bad times.
Be sure you do pray for
them, then follow up by asking them about the situation
you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern.
If coworkers are discussing what they did during the

can show our faith by our works. Others may not like
a tree of righteousness, but they cannot help but like
its fruit. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel,
being careful not to infringe on your boss’s time.
