Do It With Great Love

“Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work” (Colossians 3:22-25, The Message).

That’s it. Whatever you do, give it your best. If you’re not in your “dream job,” work with the attitude that that it is. Do every task with the same enthusiasm and vigor that you would put toward that dream job. You’ll find that maybe, just maybe you end up liking what you do and doing what you like better.

Everyone is a minister in some way. Your pulpit is your desk or your work van or your home or anyplace you give your life to for 40 hours a week. Your message is your work ethic and your attitude on the job.

I think Dwight L. Moody said once that while one person might read the Bible, 100 more will read the person who reads the Bible. One way of gaining their attention is living out every part of your life as an act of worship and giving your best in everything you do because your real boss is not a supervisor or manager but God.
