Be God's Steward

Accountable to God

In order to live out our faith at work well, we need the proper perspective. In this video, produced in partnership with WorkMatters, Donnie Smith, the President and CEO of Tyson Foods Inc., shares his life verse. Ultimately, work-as-worship means understanding everything we have and do as a stewardship of God’s belongings. 

Donnie’s perspective of his work—that he’s answerable first and foremost to God alone—shapes how he approaches everything he does. His life verse is 1 Corinthians 4:1–4. 

1 Corinthians 4:1-4 (ESV)

The Ministry of Apostles

1This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.2Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful.3But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself.4 For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me.

God has entrusted to us our jobs. As a result, we can honor Him with the way we do our work, the way we balance life, and the way we deal with hard times. Through it all, we steward the gracious gift of God and glorify Him. As you go to work, remember that your work is worship.
