theWord

Going to work…how do you feel about it? I am blessed, I like my job but many people do not. How does the bible view it? There is an important biblical principle to follow if you are going to enjoy your work: View yourself as a servant. Colossians 3:23-24: “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.” As a general rule folks think we receive eternal rewards for spiritual practices like reading the bible, prayer, or evangelism. But here, Paul asserts that all work done to the honor of Christ will bring an eternal reward. Why not receive a double blessing? A good work attitude goes a long way, both for ourselves internally and those we work with.
