Getting the Most Out of Work
Monday, January 14, 2008
READ | Colossians 3:22-24
Love what you do, and you will not work a day in your life,” goes the modern
saying. But we don’t always get to do what we like or labor alongside
easy-going people. Any job—even a well-loved one—has low points and tasks
that feel like drudgery. Our attitude, then, cannot be based upon the work
itself or our feelings; rather, it must reflect our position as God’s
children. We would be far wiser to adopt a new maxim: Work for the Lord you
love, and you will be fulfilled every day of your life.”
We get the most out of our work when we view ourselves as servants. Modern
culture teaches us to seek power and respect for self instead of toiling
diligently for those who are in authority over us. But God’s Word preaches a
different principle: “Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters
on earth” (Colossians 3:22). Biblical obedience isn’t merely an outward show
with inward grumbling and resentment, but a true commitment to the welfare
of the employer. (Paul used the word “slaves” because the ancient practice
of human ownership was common at the time. Though times have changed, the
godly principle still applies.)
God’s children are called to be His servants. Since we spend significant
amounts of time at a job, much of our service will be done there. As
employees, we are to apply the biblical principles of obedience and
sacrifice, because whoever our human boss may be, God is the ultimate
authority overseeing our actions. He wants to see us practicing
righteousness at work.
