It's important that all men have great work ethics and good integrity
When dealing with difficult people at work, a kind word will turn away wrath, but we should be straight up and deal with them directly. Be a man and stand up like a man. If they have freedom to be cussing then you have freedom to stand up to them. Rebuke them sharply and be respected more than liked. You can be the thorn in their side with God's truth.
Have a kind word, but a strong word. That's what Jesus did. No man, especially a Christian, should ever be walked on. Stand strong and support the Lord. You've got be able to be the Marshall Dillon. It's a time of confrontation, not negotiation.
You should do your job at work, that's what you do. God's love with show in you.
The best way to share the Gospel at work is to first develop a friendship, and speak in a way they are likely to receive, like Paul did at Mars Hill. Don't get right into theology. Just talk to them. Give them milk.
People are made to respond to the truth. We are created to follow God. It's up to us to tell them how to do that.
It's not what a man says, but what he is. They need to be strong, and diligent, and have wisdom.
Favorite verse is Colossians 3:16
When commuting listen to songs that have good Theology. Jeremy Camp, David Crowder, Dennis Agajanian, some of the old hymns, Fanny Crosby, Michael W. Smith.
Final thought: Become a student of the Bible. Memorize certain verses. It's important that God know us and we know Him.
