“Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve.”
Scripture Reflection: Colossians 3:23-24
The 365 Lesson: What would happen if we approached every task we had to do with the LORD in mind?
In life, we are called to do many things. I’d like to believe that most of us approach our tasks with the right kind of attitude. I’d like to believe that we each strive to successfully complete our assignments with a CAN DO mindset. But, I have to wonder whether or not we involve our hearts and souls in the process? Do we engage in our work with an “I’m doing this for the LORD” focus, or do we just go through the motions of doing something for the sake of doing it?
Challenge: Going forward, I would have you consider each task you do as an offering to the LORD. Do it, not only with the LORD in mind (as for the LORD), but also as if it is done unto the LORD Himself.
Prayer: Father, thank You for being such a beautiful example of love and grace in action. From the beginning, You have shown us selfless love. You have called us to do the same. As we press into each new day, help us to approach each task with You in mind. Teach us to do all things as unto You and for You. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
