Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
It is easy to be grumpy about the work we need to do each day. I know it is easy for me to find things to complain about. When I do complain, I am forgetting this message from Colossians. It is for God that I work, and it is because of God’s grace I am here at all! By God’s grace I have a family, a home and a livelihood. My hard work is one of the ways I can say “thank-you” to God.
Holy Father, you have set me in this place, at this time, in this community. I am so thankful. I will show my thanks by working hard, and not taking for granted all of your gifts. Amen
