“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” (Colossians 3:23)
We all report to someone. A manager, an owner, the shareholders, partners, a board, and that insidious of masters, the bank. How do we act when they are not present, or not demanding something specific? Do we slack off, are we disrespectful, do we only do what is required and no more?
The bible challenges us to act and work as if serving God Himself. This is because, in reality we are, working for and with a Saviour who has given His all for us. How much more then, knowing what He has endured for us, should we endure all things and work with all our hearts, serving Him. And this should not be out of compulsion but out of a grateful and thankful heart.
Quick Prayer. “You deserve the best Lord, help me to remember who I am working for.” Amen
