Colossians 3:23-24

 
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:23-24

In this chapter of Colossians, Paul teaches that living for Jesus involves all aspects of our lives. Here, he specifically encourages those who are "bondservants" to do their work for the Lord, not simply to please those in a position of authority over them. Bondservants were men and women in voluntary or involuntary servitude to their masters.

Each of us performs work, whether we are punching a time clock, pursuing an education, or making the place we live a home for our family. How our attitude and sense of purpose changes when "whatever we do" is done to the best of our ability with a desire to honor God! After all, we who believe know that our "wage" is the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Before you attempt the next task that duty demands, I encourage you to bring these verses to mind. Consider the Lord as the One for whom your efforts matter. It will have a profound effect on you and those around you when your work becomes an opportunity to serve Christ.
