At the beginning of this year God challenged me to live out Colossians 3:23 NIV in a way I never have before. I’ve always had (what I consider) to be a great work ethic. However, God isn’t solely concerned with how we do things, but also why. Working as unto the Lord starts in you mind and heart – it’s an attitude. You can work hard with the wrong intent – to be glorified by people. To work as for the Lord means that your motive isn’t human recognition or financial gain, it’s pleasing God.
