Devotional: Do It Unto Jesus
Children's Devotion on doing everything as if to Jesus
This is something we all need to remember. If we see our chores at home, or the school projects we don't particularly like as something done for the Lord, then that will change our whole outlook on it.
Whatever we do, do it heartily, as to the Lord (v:23). That means doing it without grumbling and complaining – as if what we are doing is done for Jesus. And this doesn't just mean when it's expected of us,
or when the teacher is "watching" us, and it also doesn't mean we do it to be "men-pleases" as in pleasing others and gaining approval in their eyes,
but whatever we do, we do out of our love for Jesus. We need to be wholehearted and sincere in everything we do no matter how boring it may seem to us.
And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.' -
Matthew 25:40 (ESV)
Help me, Lord, to not forget
That everything I do
Should be done wholeheartedly
As if it's done for you.
