Whatever you do...

Posted: June 14, 2017

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters..."   Colossians 3:23

My favorite part of this verse is the first word: Whatever.  Unfortunately we all rate job statuses in our minds:  janitors are at the bottom, followed closely by stay-at-home-moms (same job, really), while CEOs and professional athletes are highly esteemed.  But we all know that your job title, if you even have one, does not necessarily dictate your work ethic.  When we are working, whether it's a paid or unpaid position, we should do so as if Jesus himself is our boss, because He kind of is.  

Jesus, thank you for the jobs you have given me.  I want to view them as blessings and missions.  Give me the eyes to see my job, coworkers, and tasks as a calling and to handle them with joy and gratitude.  Amen.
