One of the best ways to give God thanks for all our blessings is to use the gifts He has given us. Colossians 3:23 says: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
Each of us has been blessed with different talents, different abilities, different skills that we should maximize and improve so working hard is a great way to give thanks to our Lord.
Whatever it is we do, however many titles we wear, we are called to do everything with all our heart and to serve the Lord by giving our all.
Sometimes we have to fight to avoid simply going through the motions and that can be difficult because life is just so complex and things aren’t always going to go our way. But when adversity strikes, we must do our best to make our work count.
God created us to work so we should view our work as His calling for our lives. Our work is our ministry. As Christians, too often we think we have to go outside our marketplace to spread God’s word but Faith On The Field is an example of how we are can take Christ to our marketplace.
It’s also important to realize while working hard that our real boss is not the supervisor or the person signing the checks; our boss is God. That’s why we should work as if we are serving the Lord. – Rob Maaddi
