Serving God well

October 14th, 2009

One of my favourite verses I think about when I am serving or working comes from Colossians 3:23. It says, “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people”.

Whatever I do in this life I always try to remember this verse. I may be serving my employer, my church or someone in the street, but ultimately I am doing it for God.

Having this attitude makes me want to serve the best I can. It makes me want to strive hard to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s as the old saying says. It makes me want to go the extra mile and not leave things half done.

I want to serve the best I can because God has been so good to me and He has blessed me so much. It is not to gain favour with Him or to gain a reward. It is out of a genuine thankfullness of heart.

So wherever you find yourself today, serve as though all you do is serving in the very presence of the King. No matter how big or small your task, see it as serving in the King’s court…because ultimately that is what you are doing!

God Bless,
