Good day everyone! We hope and pray you are having a great week!
In times like this, we are grateful for each and every opportunity given to us, like the privilege to work from home. But sometimes, things happen the way we don’t expect and often times when that happens, it really gets into our nerves. Sometimes, we even complain! But let me share my journal for today, which reminded me of one important thing I always overlook when it comes to work, in Colossians 3:22-24 it says:
22 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters,[a] not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
I was reminded that I am not just working for my earthly master aka my boss, but we work for the Lord. God led us to the jobs we have right now and even if there are things that we don’t like about our jobs —may it be the system, the environment, the people etc., I was reminded that I work where I work for a reason.
Aside from the opportunity to work and provide for our families, God —our ultimate master is also giving us the opportunity to bless, to pray and to minister in the hearts of the people He surrounded us with!
Isn’t it exciting to work for the Lord? 🤩
I hope and pray that this encourages us to be intentional in every work we do. Whether we are working from our homes or in the office —may we give Glory to God!
