"Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as (something done) for the LORD and not for men."
- Colossians 3:23
 
Paul had been telling servants how to serve their masters: in simplicity of purpose, with all your heart, because of your reverence for the LORD and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him in verse 22. Whatever they did was to be done "heartily, as to the LORD, and not unto me."
 
We, too, are to please the LORD, and not men, in our service. We are to be enthusiastic. "Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily." We are to be sold on what we do. We are to put every part of our being into what we are doing.
 
We must have the right motive. We must view our tasks as something done for the LORD and not for men.  This is true not only of our Christian activity but of . . .

We must have the right motive. We must view our tasks as something done for the LORD and not for men.  This is true not only of our Christian activity but of everything we do. We must do our housework heartily as to the LORD. In our offices or in the fields,we must work heartily as to the LORD. We must keep our eyes on Him, watching for His direction in what we do; our one desire must be to please Him above all others.
 
Christian friends, let's view our daily work, whatever it is, as an extension of God's work in the world. As we do so, we'll find there is no better place to spread the good news of salvation than right where God has placed us.
 
     Teach me, my God and King
     In all things Thee to see,
     And what I do in anything
     To do it as for Thee.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - For the Christian, work is ministry.
