If you are serving the transition of someone who is your employer or supervisor, your main task is to watch the condition of your heart.
In a healthy, honor-filled work environment, the person transitioning may be blessed by financial gifts, severance packages, and trips to nice locales. These can all be part of a working relationship that honors long-term faithful service.
Early on, choose to celebrate each blessing the outgoing person receives. Celebrate the honor they receive like you were the one receiving the gifts. Don’t miss the joy of blessing another person. Give honor where honor is due, even to someone who may have been hard to work with. You will never fail by giving honor.
