Demanding Bosses

As a young man I had a demanding boss who abused his staff. After weeks of promised weekends off that never materialized, I finally had a scheduled night off.

While preparing for a date, my boss called and demanded that I come to work. When I balked, he snapped, “Come to work now, or you’re fired.”

Out of anger, I gladly resigned. I immediately felt relieved.

King Rehoboam lost half his kingdom when he ignored his counselors advice in 1 Kings 12:7, “They replied, ‘If today you will be a servant to these people and serve them and give them a favorable answer, they will always be your servants.”

If you desire to build a loyal team, remember that serving your people will likely result in them gladly serving you.
