Working Hard

We often think of our jobs in terms of our paychecks. What if there is more to being an employee than 5:00 on Friday and depositing a check? Paul told the Colossians:

Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. – Colossians 3:22 (NIV)

When it comes to working, we should always give our best effort, even if our employer is not watching us. Why? Because the Lord is always watching us. How we work says a lot about who we are and to whom we belong. We belong to Jesus and our work should please Him. If we are working for the weekend, we’re working for the wrong reasons. God has blessed us with the jobs we have and out of a desire to honor Him, we should work hard and with integrity. Just because no one is watching, we don’t have the right to goof off. Let’s give our best today and everyday in order to please and honor our Father in Heaven.
