Whatever your Work

Clematis




 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men,  knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.  Colossians 3:23-24 (NASB) 

__________



Whatever work we do it should be with reverence for the Lord. We should be working with an awareness of God’s character and presence as we work. This enhances the dignity of our labor. As Christian employees we should serve our employers with genuine concern and as though we were serving God.  It is the Lord Christ whom all Christians are serving.

___________


It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it. 

—  Unknown


Your work is a very sacred matter. God delights in it, and through it. He wants to bestow His blessing on you. This praise of work should be inscribed on all tools, on the forehead and the face that sweat from toiling. For the world does not consider labor a blessing. Therefore it flees and hates it....But the pious, who fear the Lord, labor with a ready and cheerful heart; for they know God's command and will.

— Martin Luther
