Catechism of the Day

Table of Duties, continued

To Servants, Hired Men, and Employees

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh,
with fear and trembling,
in singleness of your heart,
as unto Christ;
not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers,
but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
with good will doing service as to the Lord, and not to men;
knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord,
whether he be bond or free.
(Ephesians 6)

Servis, Ancillis, Mercenariis et Ceteris ad Laborem Conductis

Servi, obedite iis, qui domini sunt secundum carnem,
cum timore ac tremore,
cum simplicitate cordis vestri,
tamquam Christo,
non ad oculum servientes, veluti hominibus placere studentes,
sed tamquam servi Christi, facientes, quae vult Deus,
ex animo cum benevolentia, servientes Domino et non hominibus,
illud scientes, quod unusquisque, quod fecerit bonum, hoc reportaturus sit a Deo,
sive servus fuerit sive liber.
(De Epistola ad Ephesios, et ad Colossenses)
