Devotional: Work, As Unto The Lord

Christian Devotion about doing our work as if for the Lord



"...Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah) ..." - Colossians 3:23-24 (AMPC)

Living by this principle would make a big difference in how we perform at our jobs, or even in the menial tasks around home. Many years ago, someone told me a story of a qualified builder who once built houses then ended up building bus stops when he was older. He did this joyfully. It didn’t seem to bother him – he just loved Jesus. It’s all a matter of 'attitude'.

I must admit I struggled with this when I was working. I was in a job I didn't enjoy for just over 10 years. Each year seemed to get worse. Looking back, I realized my attitude was not good towards my job, and I became bitter while I was there. It became a dread each day. No matter what we are doing, we need to remember it is really for the Lord. Even in the secular sector, we are witnesses for Him, so everything we do is for Him.

We need to work as if it's for the Lord
For it's from the Lord, we receive our reward.
