Give Your Employer His Due
It is the business of the servant, the man who is employed — irrespective of who may employ him — to give himself utterly to his track and to his master while he is doing it. His time is not his own time, it is his master’s time. The money he handles is not his, it is his master’s. Everything connected with his work is his master’s. In other words, I would say that a Christian is disobeying the Apostle’s injunction if, during his master’s time, and when he ought to be doing his master’s work, he is directing his attention to any other interest.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Life in the Spirit in Marriage, Home & Work: An Exposition of Ephesians 5:18-6:9, pg. 348
