Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
(Colossians 3:23-24 ESV)
I came across this verse online. It popped up on the front of a website I was visiting, and it held my attention…
I don’t work for other people, nor do I work solely for myself. I serve the Lord. Therefore, it doesn’t matter what others think of me or whether I can measure up to my own perfectionist standards. God examines my heart.
So, this begs the question: Where’s my heart at right now? What am I working toward? Is it self-gain? A pat on the back, so-to-speak? Or is it to fulfill Jesus final command before ascending back into heaven: the great commission? And, if it is the latter…
What the heck does that even look like?
I guess the best way to find out is to pray, make a decision, then act on it in faith. I’m still in the prayer stage. What about you?
God bless, and good night!
