WHAT-EVER! – Share simple ways you can live out this week’s reflection verse.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
~ Colossians 3:23 NIV84
Although I’m not the greatest at memorizing Scripture, I LOVE to read the verses over and over again (out loud too – in my car driving to work!). This verse has been in my heart for many years! Honestly, I think the reason it became so special to me was because of a work situation at the time. I was EXTREMELY UNHAPPY and it was all I could do to get up and go to work every day! I take my Christian witness serious, so I didn’t want to do anything to embarrass God (However, I must admit feeling like God wasn’t hearing my prayers AT ALL!!!).
I got through those 5 years (actually probably more like 4 years) by focusing on this Scripture. I didn’t work for the person with the title “boss” – I worked for HIM! No matter what was said, I KNEW I was doing a good job and everything I did was for Him!
