Work Ethic

Colossians 3V23

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”

Our Father God, here we come in front of your throne of grace and my prayer is that you guide each of us to reflect your light wherever we are, with whatever we are pre-occupied and work on. Whatever we do, help us to do it for your glory and to work with gratitude and thankfulness in our heart. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

The Lord is a wise God. His wisdom is continuously reflected within the Bible.

Each human being is working. A baby has a work to do, an infant as well, an adult and an elder. Work never stops! The baby needs to survive and learn eventually to stand on two feet, the infant needs to memorize and copy everything around, an adult…has a lot of work (!) and an elder…needs to be the wise guy!

In fact, the definition of work is:

Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.

Specifically, Paul speaks not only of a professional job, a career etc but for anything we do.

We need to do things, whatever it is, for God’s glory. We use to complain for this and that, losing our energy in whining than try to build up and contribute something beneficial within the environment of whatever we are occupied with.

People will look at us and when they see our endurance, our willingness, our perseverance, I strongly believe that they will see Jesus whose ambassadors we are.

Above all, I know (I do not just believe) that when we keep working with our heart, doing it as we would work for our God, doors open, “promotions” happen, the Lord takes us to the next level.

It might be a work, an activity just for a season. We still need to remain hard workers and feeling gratitude, creating something new even if it seems small.

So, let’s keep the work ethic and be examples for future generations to come! Let’s look at what we do just here and now with a loving perception, let’s fall in love with what we do and throw our passion in it!

Love,

Dimitra

    “If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:11
