Being an employee is a wonderful blessing! You have the ability to do work and be compensated for it. You get to take that money and do whatever you choose with it. Here are w few tips to help you be the best employee that you can be.
1. Be thankful you have a job.
Express your gratitude to your boss. Let her know how much you value her leadership and training in your life. Pray in thanksgiving to God for the work that He allows you to do.
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
2. Give your best.
You have expertise. You have gifts. You are hired to do a job so do it to the best of your ability. Your skill and competence is what caused you to get hired so use your abilities to do your very best. Be confident in the talents that you bring to your team.
“Whether therefore ye eat or drink or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
3. Never cheat your employer.
Your employer is trading their money for your time. If you continually show up late, act lazy, gossip, miss deadlines, create drama, hurt people and mistreat customers then you will be fired. You are an investment for them and they want to see a good return on their investment.

4. Give them reasons to keep and promote you.
Go above and beyond at your job. Focus on your tasks all day and get them done early so you can help out a coworker or get started early on your next project. Pick up trash off the floor. Clean out the dreaded break room microwave.
