Who is watching you?

Undercover Boss is a new show on CBS airing on Sunday Evenings. If you haven't watched it ~ I recommend it. It is a show where the CEO of a company goes undercover and works within their companies ~ all facets of the company ~ from packing to customer service, cooking, working assembly lines, waiting tables etc. Depending upon the company and what service they provide.
It has been so interesting to watch these CEO's and how the majority of them say that while they sit behind their desks and work towards growing the company and making it run at the most sufficient way possible that this causes them to "not be around the people that work for them" on a regular basis. In a nutshell they don't see them AT ALL. In the shows you see some of them really connect with their employees on a personal level and get involved in their lives going as far as offering them some sort of bonus at the time of the reveal. Some employees are promoted and some well, they are let go (not on the show but later if their performance doesn't improve) It is a great lesson for all and especially to share with your children. One thing I have tried to teach my children is that although we think we are doing something and may possibly feel as we are getting away with something the LORD alway sees. He knows our thoughts even before we think them so of course HE will see our actions at the time we are doing them.

For Believers Our Boss or CEO is the Lord and HE doesn't stay AWAY from us trying to figure things out to make us better He waits lovingly for us to seek HIM and has all the answers we need. He is watching us even when we sleep. He longs to talk to us and to hear our hearts. On the show during the reveal so many of the employees are just amazed even to the point of tears how they are shocked that their boss would take his/her time out to listen to them, to show them that they care. The Lord does this everyday and for me I am so thankful to know that I don't have to wonder if I am being watched or that someone is going Undercover to make sure I am doing what I am suppose to. Don't get me wrong.....I make mistakes and I definately can improve my daily life....but I have the Ultimate CEO and HE lovingly teaches, guides, directs, and cares for me along with providing for all of my needs.....

I know for sure I will never be fired, never be let go, and will always have a place in HIS Family....isn't that the best boss you could ever ask for!!

Thank you Lord for you are worthy to be praised!

Happy Monday everyone! :)

Great post my friend. So true. And on a side note, that show sounds really cool. I think it's a great idea for bosses to get to know their employees.

I love that show too Loren, though for some reason I only saw the first two episodes and now I don't know when it is airs. :-/

Anyway, you're right -- God always sees us and I'm thankful His mercies are new every morning.

Bless you today!

I LOVE THAT SHOW! That is so funny that you would blog about it today because last night that was my FB status...how I loved that show and how "our boss" is always watching me! Great lesson in life right there! I think next week is in Branson, MO! It looks like they are at Silver Dollar City! How cool is that? I already DVRd it!
Great post girl!

I think that show is great! It really opens their eyes up to the 'real' world... not just the wonderful way they think everything is running. They get to see the stories behind the people making their company run.

For sure we are blessed to have the BEST boss ever! :)

Love & Blessings,

Such a great word on this Monday morning.

God loves us in spite of how we're failing "on the job." In fact, at times, I think he might love us all the more when we're at our very worst.

Thanks for the reminder and for letting this fill my thoughts today. You are loved.

So truly spoken Loren! That is also a lesson I have tried to teach my children. Often times when we try to get away with things we look AROUND us to see if anyone saw. But often times we forget to look UP, and remember there is one that sees everything.

However it can also give us the greatest comfort to know that we are always being looked after too. Great post!

This was great Loren and oh so true. There is nothing better than being able to totally trust that your boss has your very best interest at heart, will help in any way he can to advance you and make you more prosperous, and who makes the working experience one you enjoy and can't wait to get to everyday. We have THE BEST Boss in the world. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Debbie

This is a terrific show. Many managers are very removed from the people.

Great post Loren....so true! We cannot hide a thing from our Lord, not actions nor thoughts. :)

Praising GOD with you for having the best boss ever...my Heavenly Father!

Amazing message here today my friend.

Isn't the Lord just so amazing?

I have never seen the show and will most definately be checking it out. Such a great reminder that God cares so much for us and is right there in our times of need.

Gotta Have Faith

Very true! The show seems to be a great success, now only if the employees of our Lord would see how they could be changed by seeking out Gods word they would feel like they have the best boss in the world.

Sorry I have not posted in a while.

Keep the Faith,

Loren,

This post was awesome. It is great to know that we serve the best Boss in the world.

I saw like a preview and I told myself, that's great. Hoping that being with the lower employees would humble such people in those higher positions!

Amen to the Lord being our CEO! My resume stated "I was His enemy" yet He still hired me! And gave me lots of bonuses which are out of this world!!! :) Love you sister! God bless.

Loren,

This is one of my new favorites this season and see so many life lessons for anyone. That making a positive impact in a business will get noticed. Maybe not by the CEO himself but its hard not to catch a contagious positive attitude, it makes it such a joy to be around and such an influence around everyone else.

I guess that is why I love being around you and so many others, you've changed my heart and soul for the better and I for one, am so glad to be blessed by you.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Oh I LOVE that show.....we just got hooked ourselves a few weeks ago. What a great concept for a show.

Love your analogy about us working for the Ultimate Boss of ALL!

Please stop by my blog today to pick up a prayer button for my wife Kat at Heart to Heart. She is having surgery in Thursday.

Thank you and God Bless,

I watched part of it one time. I imagine there would be many changes if more bosses had the attitude or care to get into the work and get to know their employess.

I love this post sweet sis, and I love you.

Hi Loren, I have seen this show.
But i am most thankful for my CEO, the same one you have, and aren't we the most blessed. You are teaching wonderful principals to your children.
Thank you for this most inspiring post.
Thank you for visiting and for always encouraging me.
Blessings,
