Do It For The Lord
Right about this time, some of you are at work, getting ready for work, dragging yourselves to work, grumbling on your way to work, thinking of quitting your job, wondering why you are still doing this job. Some of you love your jobs, some hate their jobs.
While giving "instructions for Christian homes" Paul said in Colossians 3:23, "whatever you do, work at it with your whole heart, as working for the Lord and not human masters." I bet you do not always think of your job that way but imagine how you will feel about that job and how your attitude towards it will change if you started looking at it as something you are doing for the Lord. Sometimes all you need is a shift in how you think about your job. Do you see your job as a way to reflect the presence of God in your life? Do you see it as a way of sharing the love of God with the people you come into contact with?
Maybe if you consider your job as something you are doing for the Lord, you will pay more attention to how you do it, you will attend to it with a better attitude, be more detail-oriented and make the most of it. What you are doing may not be your dream job right now but it does not mean you should not do it as best as you can. Your attitude to your job should be no different whether you love or hate your job, love or hate your boss, your pay is not enough, it is temporary or permanent.
Determine to do your job today as if it were for the Lord and see if it will not make a difference.
