Work Willingly At Whatever You Do, As Though You Were Working For The Lord Rather Than For People


Work Willingly At Whatever You Do, As Though You Were Working For The Lord Rather Than For People

The View from Above

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”
(Colossians 3:23)
When no one’s looking, does your work suffer? Or are you just as thorough even when God is your only audience?

Oscar Hammerstein wrote the lyrics for such musicals as “The Sound of Music” and “The King and I.” He was a consummate craftsman who appreciated attention to fine detail. That’s why a newspaper photograph of the Statue of Liberty caught his attention. It had been taken from a helicopter in such a way that it showed the top of the statue’s head.

“I was amazed at the detail there,” Hammerstein said. After all, the sculptor had done his work in the days before air travel. He must have believed that no eyes other than his own would ever see the perfect lines of Lady Liberty’s coiffure. An uninspired craftsman would have skipped that part. Instead, it was the mark of a true artist to give his best to details that may be viewed by no one but God and himself.

Go out today in the knowledge that God will notice a job well done even when no one else does. Work diligently knowing that He walks with you throughout your day.

Matthew 25:14-30

Because God is ever-present,
I will work diligently even on the smallest task.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
