Employees and their bosses

Ephesians 6:5-9

Employees, be obedient to those who are your bosses according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as employees of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a undercontract or a boss.

And you, bosses, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own boss [God] also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.

[The orginal was written for first century Rome where employees were slaves and bosses were slavemasters.]
