5Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.

6: 5   Slaves played a significant part in this society. When Paul wrote this letter, the Roman Empire had several million slaves. Because many slaves and owners had become Christians, the early church had to deal straightforwardly with the question of master-slave relations. Paul’s statement neither condemns nor condones slavery. Instead, it tells masters and slaves how to live together in Christian households. In Paul’s day, women, children, and slaves had few rights. In the church, however, they had freedoms that society was denying them. Paul tells husbands, parents, and masters to be caring.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.

I think today we could relate this to employer employee relationships. Meaning employees do your job correctly and as if you were doing it for CHRIST. And employers treat your employees like you would want CHRIST to treat you as he does with his GRACE AND MERCY.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and always do your jobs as you were doing it for CHRIST by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
