“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)
This verse is a great reminder of who we are living for and what truly matters.
It is so easy to get off track and forget why you are doing the things you do. We start working for others and to prove something to other people, instead of working for the Lord and making ourselves happy. In todays society there is a huge emphasis put on fortune and fame. In hindsight none of that matters, or will matter at the end of the day. Things and wealth can satisfy you for a short period of time, but will never fulfill you and make you truly happy. Whatever it is that you love doing, do it! At least try and do it. When doing whatever it is that you do, do it for the Lord and do it with joy and love. At the end of the day you’re happy, God is happy and that is all you have to worry about.
Whatever your profession, make sure you enjoy what you’re doing and giving it 110%. Live for the Lord and you can’t go wrong.
What are your thoughts? I hope that you are blessed by God’s word today!
