Don’t Threaten to Quit
Ever threatened to quit your job?
If you threaten to leave, co-workers and management may begin hoping that you will! In fact, experts agree that threats to leave one’s position hurts an employee in the long run. Loyalty to the company and trust is immediately lost. If money is the only thing an employee wants, then management knows they aren’t dedicated to the company. Complainers who threaten to leave make their boss’s job easier. They simply accept the resignation. An employee who lacks verbal self-control will find his mental stability and professionalism questioned.
Pride can lead to one’s downfall. Sometimes a simple attitude adjustment is needed. Thinking you deserve more – or better than what you have – often demonstrates a lack of gratitude and humility. Maybe you are overqualified, frustrated, or lacking purpose. Stop threatening to leave! Instead, prepare a resume, and go find a better job. Remember, work is worship when it’s done as an offering to the Lord, and not for your own benefit. Your gifts and talents should be stewarded wisely to benefit others and glorify Christ. Colossians 3:17 says, “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Every project, task, and conversation you have at work should be done to bring Him honor and glory. As the Psalmist wrote, “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord,” (Psalm 19:14)
