As a Christian working in professional kitchens, I sometimes find it quite difficult to stand up for what I believe is right and true. Most of you know that a lot of the talk that goes on in the back of the kitchen is very degrading to our Heavenly King.
There are many characters in the Bible who stood up for what was right, no matter what others thought or did. I think of one named Daniel. He was surrounded by sinful acts, but did that ever stop him from worshipping his Father in Heaven? NO, it didn't! In fact, when he was told to bow before other gods, he refused, and was punished. But God honored Daniel's faithfulness and saved his life. (Daniel 6)
Why not have that same kind of faith NOW!!! Just like Daniel did back then! Take a look and see what you can change to make your time at work more glorifying to God.
Reference verses = Philippians 1:27 and Ephesians 5:15-16
