Read Introduction to Colossians


“But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.”


“But he who does wrong”

If the Christian employee does not put in a good day’s work, he must reckon with his God. He may hide his sloppy work from his boss, but he cannot hide it from God.

“will be repaid for what he has done”

The employer on earth will parlay retribution to the half-hearted employee. Also, any time the Christian does not serve with a view to pleasing the Lord, he is not eligible for a reward. 

“and there is no partiality”

God is impartial. He treats people equally, whether they be the boss or the employee. Both will stand upon a level playing field before Him. God does not treat some people better than others.


God treats his children fairly and without partiality.


God does not give deference to the position, rank, popularity, or circumstances of men. He respects their intrinsic worth and never their conditions, preferring the rich and powerful to those who are not (Rom. 2:11; Eph. 6:9; Col. 3:25; James. 2:1).

God will straighten out all wrongs in eternity. He will not favor the employee over the employer or the employer over the employee.
