Most internships are full of tedious work or errand running. Rarely does a company ever take advantage of the skills that that a young individual might bring to the table. If you are the boss or manager, the intern is there to assist you at any given moment. If you are a lower level employee, the intern is probably still someone you tell to make copies and fax documents. Interns often have the worst jobs, and they don’t get paid for any of it!
Here are 6 ways that indicate you may be treating God like your own personal intern:
God should be the CEO of your life. If you are under-employing or under-appreciating Him, you are taking advantage of Him. God wants to be and should be LORD of your life. He is not just a part, but the whole!
Marital Application: (At NAME, we always put in a marital application because that is the ministry we have been called to focus on.) If God is a second-class citizen in your life, chances are your spouse will be too. God has designed a priority of ordered loves. It is supposed to be GOD—spouse—family—church—others. God is supposed to take that first spot; if you have one spot out of place, then they all shift out of place. Also, if God has become your glorified errand boy, you are not connected with who He is relationally to you: Father, friend, King, confidant, etc. Without a well developed relationship with the Maker of perfect relationships, you will struggle creating a healthy marital relationship on your own. Make God the CEO of your marriage.
