“In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people.” Colossians 3:23 (NCV)
Do you have a do-to list? If you do, what have you got to do today? Have you got a busy day, relaxed day, do you have work, coursework, exams or something else to do today?
Whatever, tasks you have to do today, big or small, today’s verse tells us, you should work the best you can. It’s so important that in life you work the hardest you possibly can. But this isn’t just to be a swot or a geek, to look good at work, to do all the housework to try to be your parents’ favourite child.
No, today’s verse says work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people. Of course, it’s important to do what you’re told at school, college, work or wherever you find yourself today, but, your motivation should be different. You shouldn’t work just for the approval and thumbs up from people, because as good as people are, they are only human and will sometimes let you down, neglect you and not give you the thumbs up you deserve. So today be sure to please God today by your hard work, keep your eyes on Jesus.
Work hard for God!
