We all report to someone: a manager, an owner, the shareholders, partners, a board, and that most insidious of masters, the bank. How do we act when they are not present or not demanding something specific? Do we slack off? Are we disrespectful? Do we only do what is required and no more?
The Bible challenges us to act and work as if we are serving God Himself. This is because in reality, we are working for and with a Savior who has given His all for us. How much more, then, knowing what He has endured for us, should we endure all things and work with all our hearts, serving Him? This should not be out of compulsion but out of a grateful heart.
Not only are we thankful for what He has done but also for what He is doing. There is opportunity all around us when we submit to God in this way. As we serve Him, His purposes are revealed to us.
Quick Prayer: You deserve the best, Lord. Help me to remember Who I am working for. Amen.
