HOW TO WORK IN A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT
1. Understand that God anoints you
for trouble. Be sure you are a
Christian. Put on the armor

2. Don't expect to be appreciated.

3. Do your job well, but remember
your mission. God put you there

it, not let it influence you.
Stop going to work to be fed --
you didn't come to receive, you
came to give.
6. Increase your capacity to work
with different personalities. God
will often bless you through people
you don't even like!
7. Remember where you are does
not define where you are going.
This will deliver you from
frustration. God has a plan for
your life. Keep your eye on the
prize. When Peter did this, he
was able to walk in what other
people sank in!
8. Get the optimum results with
minimal confusion. Be effective
without making the environment
9. Don't be associated with one
group or clique. Labels limit
your usefulness. God wants you
to work with everybody but be
labeled by nobody. Use all your
