As is stands, office politics for anyone is difficult.
The ones who care more about the quality of the work tend to be bad at office politics.
The ones that seem to be lazy, incompetent, or both often excel at it.
What is a Christian to do?
Politics at work is real proof of our fallen world. So in some ways, we cannot avoid it at work.
In fact, anecdotally it seems churches are often the most political and least culturally healthy places to work.
So just going to church and reading the Bible isn’t going to make you or anyone savvy in this area.
That being said, I have been reflecting on this verse of late:
Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. (Matthew 10:16)
