My Work Is for God

It doesn’t matter where we work or what we do. If we’re followers of Jesus, Colossians 3:23 tells us: “whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.”

That’s because we’re not just punching in and out at work; we’re on assignment for God. It takes more prayer and focus on our part to tune into God’s purpose for our week. But remember: we’re always on mission with the people in our workplace through our attitude and integrity, and how we demonstrate what it looks like to live with the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Let’s do our jobs with excellence and give our bosses (or teachers) our best. We report to an even higher authority.

How To Appreciate What You Have

Understand that no matter who your boss is on earth, God is your first and true boss. This will revolutionize your life and change the way you look at work.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24

The Truth: While work is a God ordained endeavor, dreaming of the ring is easier than getting the ring.

Double Dog Dare: Join a Career Group
