Colossians 3:23 – And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men
Having a tough day at work? Your manager giving you a hard time? How do you react? Do you slack at work because you have got disinterested or do you continue to work diligently?
Is your teacher in school favoring another classmate instead of you? Do your marks show your disinterest in the subject or do you continue to work hard and give it your best?
The question we should ask ourselves is – “Who leads our behavior and actions?”. Is my behavior influenced by the individuals I work with or is it to glorify the name of my Lord Jesus Christ? The Bible teaches us to do everything to the best of our ability. To work diligently, conscientiously, giving it our all. We do not work for men, we work for our Living God and our behavior should emulate the teachings of our Lord. You may not have a teacher or your boss watching you work, but our God in Heaven watches you and knows your heart.
Dear Lord, let me glorify your name through my works. Help me to not be influenced by the people of this world but to work diligently bringing honor and Glory to your name. Amen.
