“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
Colossians 3:23, NIV
You can probably think of many times in which you simply did not give your best effort, or didn’t really try very hard. Every person, because of our human imperfections, sometimes chooses to be lazy and not try. But the example given by Christ, and the one mentioned in Colossians 3, is completely the opposite. Christians are to be the best at whatever they do, because they are to do everything as if they were doing it for God alone!
When you put your whole heart into whatever it is you are supposed to do, God will recognize that and bless you for it. You should strive for and pursue excellence in all you do, for the sake of God; He blesses excellence!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
God, I want to do my work and everything else with true excellence. Give me Your power to be an example of Christ to those around me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
