Making Work Count

Work matters to God.

In an era of record ongoing unemployment, good work matters more than ever.

For the believer, its more than just a job. Colossians 3:23 teaches that work is an attitude: "whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."

God places work in our life as an opportunity to worship Him. Scripture teaches that God is always working, creating and sustaining His creation.

I believe that work and godliness go hand in hand.

Today, look at the work God has given you- in an office, driving a truck, teaching children, helping the sick, etc. All of its good and its more than just a paycheck and future retirement.

Good work pushes forward the Kingdom of God in powerful, redemptive ways.

Remember who your Boss is!
