Undercover Boss

Undercover Boss is a reality TV series  Each episode depicts a person who has an upper-management position at a major business, deciding to go undercover as an entry-level employee to discover the faults in the company.

We have enjoyed watching how a CEO goes incognito, starts dialogues and develops relationships with rank and file employees.  He learns about their life’s trials and sometimes deepest of thoughts.   Sometimes, he learns of things he doesn’t want to know.  At times there are employees who are not very good.

At the end of the program, the moment of truth arrives as he uncovers himself to the employee in a meeting with them.  Surprise!!  To those who are struggling with financial challenges or family problems that could be solved with education or other aid, he’s there to help them through. Emotional gratefulness is manifest and the story ends on a happy note.

On other occasions, a poor employee is exposed and corrected and sometimes, I believe, let go.

This series was very popular and millions watched it.  The series has run eight seasons so far.

In my thoughts, I reflected on the greatest Undercover Boss of all.  It was Jesus Christ.

In the first chapter of John He is identified as The Word.  The Word WAS God and with God.  The Word became flesh and dwelt with men.  He was the ultimate Undercover Boss when He came to the earth as a human.

He mixed with mankind.  He hurt for them. He healed them.  He spoke to them. He truly experienced humanity that He had created.  Now, He was one of them.  And, He did it for a great purpose which was to redeem it from destruction and to save it.

He did finally reveal Himself to both the religious community as the I AM of the Old Testament.  He revealed Himself to Pilate, the Roman authority as KING.

Jesus Christ continues to live with us in Spirit.  We can relate to Him because He was human.  His purpose was to connect us not only to Himself, but to God the Father.

Maybe I’ll develop this idea further….

  1. Dear Mr. Kubik:

    Thank you very much for this very meaningful application. What seems to be at the core of this show for me is the importance bosses place on workers whose primary focus is not themselves, but the company and customers. These types of employees are often rewarded in the show for their hard work and humble attitude with increased opportunities for training and advancement. The employees who seem to promote their own positions in the company first often become the last to receive what they thought they deserved. Jesus Christ and God the Father are looking for a few good men and women who hope for the gift of eternal life, not because they want to just live forever, but because they desire to serve forever. Thank you very much, again, for the wonderful comparison of the underlying premise of this show and the very business culture of God the Father and Jesus Christ.
