Unrighteous boss

2 Samuel 11:15” "Place Uriah in the front line of the fiercest battle and withdraw from him, so that he may be struck down and die."

King David told his Commander Joab to put Uriah in the front line of the battle and kill him, Joab obeyed meticulously and got the job done – good man Uriah was killed.  Now, I want to talk on the subject ‘do you have to obey all the things that your boss asks you to do? ‘ A BIG NO.  This guy Joab followed orders and did that murderous, dirty, cowardly act because he was wicked on the inside who finally was killed by  Benaiah son of Jehoiada, (1 King 2:28) during the days of Solomon. So you don’t have to blindly obey orders, pause and think!

When I joined to work for a multinational bank, my mom told me, ‘ do not stand guarantee hastily for others’ nor ‘ carelessly sign in bond papers’, check before you sign.  I valued that piece of advice all my life, even today my mom’s perspective, be it while hiring a staff or simple domestic home details they do have profound insight – this comes from experience,  you are blessed if you have such elders at home.

Now, back to the subject, make your higher officials, supervisors and leaders understand that you are not going to deviate from the righteous path.  You may be asked to enter data that are not true, or manipulate details, cheat, lie or sometimes just hide the truth which is not right anyway.  The men who obeyed wicked king Saul foolishly and who were sticking around with Saul while he was doing wicked things, eventually died along with him, read - 1 Samuel 31:6 “So on that day, Saul died together with his three sons, his armor-bearer, and all his men. “ Caveat! Did you know there are umpteen wicked, dishonest things that you are asked to do in the running of the school? Resume of teachers who do not work in the school are actually projected as currently working and then submitted along with the list of teachers, when actually a Inter-passed young lady is teaching in the class.  Atrocity!  Millions of other things are happening while the righteous suffer; nevertheless, stand for the truth. Proverbs 21:21”He who pursues righteousness and loyalty finds life, righteousness and honor.” Do not obey unrighteous orders even if you have to forfeit the job, someone needs this today!  Hello!
