Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23 NIV
There are two ways of looking at work.
1. The thing that you do to earn an income so you can live.
2. That thing that you do that you were created to do.
Very few of us are blessed to do the thing that we were created to do as our income earner. For those of us who are not doing that thing for which we were created, we may find ourselves asking: “What the point?”
To which the Bible answers: ‘For the glory of God.’
“But,” you may ask, how I can do something I dislike or even hate doing for the glory of God?”
My friend, you are asking a very valid question, one that I often find myself asking. This is what I think the answer is: we have to somehow in our every day figure out how to run the race that God has set out before us.
We cannot afford to fall into the trap of defining ourselves according to the work that we do (this applies no matter what type of work we do).
How can we be Jesus to someone at work?
How can we shed a little light in a dark world?
How can our lives tell of Jesus who died for all humanity?
What can you do today to make your work reflect the glory of God?
