15 mistakes I made while working with men: Mistake #15

Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord—you serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24, HCSB.

15 – don’t quit! never give up!

In conclusion

Working with men is a great experience. Most often, they say what they mean and don’t have a hidden agenda. Respect them and serve them faithfully and they will be your advocates at every turn.

Do not quit your job because you are frustrated. Do not give up trying to work with them. God is in the business of restoring relationships and quitting is not an option. Pray, pray, pray. Do not quit and do not give up!

I thank God for the awesome men that I have served with and who have tolerated me while I learned to communicate and strive to be that professional, Godly woman that we all long to be.
