Christian living, 31 day writing challenge, work

As I was at work today, contemplating what to write about, I knew I had to focus on the verse that commands us to do all our work "as unto the Lord." Colossians 3:23.

Why is it important to do our work this way? Because with any other focus we will eventually lose heart, grow discouraged, or be tempted to do sloppy work. Life can throw so many things at us at once that we might think about going to work as an escape from the rest of our lives. If we get caught in this trap, then our work will be less than it should be, and our attitudes will stink. I know - I've been there, done that, and needed to repent and go make it right.

If we view ALL of our work as service to God, then we can see it all has value, and we are reminded that how we do our work reflects on our Master, the Lord of heaven Himself. The next time you are weary, and tempted to slack off, be encouraged that God is there to give you strength to do your work for His glory - whether you are running a business meeting or wiping a toddler's nose. Do it all heartily, as to the Lord!
