Today's Godly Reminder - Ephesians 6:5-6

"Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart."

Be obedient to those who are your earthly masters. Also, have the respect for authority. Seek to please them, as service o Christ with a sincere heart. Don't work only when someone is watching you and only to please men. But as slaves of Christ, do the will of God from your heart.

Respectfully obey your earthly masters but always with an eye to obeying the real master, Christ. Don’t just do what you have to do to get by, but work heartily, as Christ’s servants doing what God wants you to do. And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God. Good work will get you good pay from the Master, regardless of whether you are slave or free. You can serve the Lord with gladness with this act.
