Earthly Jobs, Heavenly Assignments

The Bible calls all Christians to see their daily work at their so-called "secular jobs" as a series of sacred acts of service to our King. We must look beyond our earthly bosses, clients and workload to see Christ. We must recognize God's watchful eye and be mindful of the pleasure our triune God takes in a job well done.  There is no place for half-hearted efforts and insincere work. We must give our all to our daily tasks and always strive to do our best.  In the words of Colossians 3:23-24, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord; it is the Lord Christ you are serving!"  We cannot fail to recognize that no matter how menial or mundane our employment may seem, God's sovereign hand has placed us right where we are, so that we can purposefully bring him glory through our heavenly-minded and wholehearted efforts.  So this week be sure to do your work in honor of our good, just and excellent King. One day he will return and begin to reward those who took their earthly jobs as heavenly assignments.
