EMPLOYEES

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Proverbs 6:4-11

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Proverbs 6:6

If you are the type of worker who needs no supervision, you can be paid the additional money that would have been paid to your supervisor. If your employer needs to employ someone to supervise you, then your supervisor will be paid more to ensure that you work well.

No employer needs a worker who has to be told when it’s time for him to wake up, when to come to work, and how to work. However, the more somebody can work without supervision, the more the employer values such a person.

I watched a documentary of an American airline (a Boeing 757 ) which crashed somewhere in South America. During the flight, the co-pilot was the one flying the plane, and not the captain. One survivor recounted that he heard the co-pilot saying, “We are approaching the airport. The weather is very good, visibility is clear, and there is no problem.” Suddenly, they heard a loud bang and the lights went out. This survivor woke up later on in the hospital. It was a terrible accident and almost everybody was killed. There were only four survivors!

The recorded conversation between the captain and the copilot was revealing. He was terribly lost. This caused the plane to crash into a mountain. Unfortunately, the co-pilot needed to be supervised constantly in order to avoid killing many people. If the captain himself had been flying the plane, it might have been a different story. If you are reliable enough to work without supervision, you will rise.
