Work it! But for who?
Do I work super hard for the moolah? Do I work myself so tired beyond tired to get one more tweet, one more like? Do I work, work, work to get that “atta boy (girl) pat-on-the-back?
Or.... do I sincerely and wholly do all that I can do as I am doing it for the LORD?
If I were assisting a challenging customer or client at work, do I do it begrudgingly?
If I am leading a team, do I do it for my own gain?
What if all that we do..... and all that we are; were servants of the FATHER?
What if GOD was our boss? Our customer? Our client?
Colossians 3:23 guides us in that “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters”
Whatever I do, I am to do it for GOD! That surely changes things now don’t it? My desire will be to please the LORD, not be tryin to get all popular with people.
My heart will be that of a helpful one. Not one that is easily angered at the difficult lady on the phone.
Is this hard stuff to put in action?
Yes. Without a doubt!
Ah... but that is when I remember to count to ten and then count on the LORD and not only on myself!
It ain’t about me. Never was and never will be!
LORD, remind me WHO I serve. Even when stared down with the difficult task, or the challenging person - let me keep my eyes steady on YOU and not my feelings, my plans, my dot dot dot!
Because it IS ALL about YOU LORD! So let me work for YOU and have a heart for YOU in all that I do. When I fall, forgive me , FATHER. I ask that YOU lift me up and allow me to start again! Amen!
