Do Your Job As If You Are Working For God

by | Dec 18, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Colossians 3:23-24 “…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) …”


Living by this principle would make a big difference in how we perform at our jobs, or even in the menial tasks around home. I read a story about a man who had to dig a ditch in Alaska. Then, the ditch would be filled when the project was complete. You would never know that there had been a ditch dug there. It would disappear. He worked digging this ditch for Jesus. He did this joyfully. It didn’t seem to bother him – he just loved Jesus. It’s all a matter of ‘attitude’.

We can struggled with this when working. Are you at t a job you do not enjoy? Does each year seem to get worse. Adjust your attitude toward the job. Become better not bitter. Do not allow it to be 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. It’s from the Lord, we receive our reward.
