December 9, 2019 WORKING FOR GOD
Many of us dread going to work daily. We look forward to the day we can retire or find another job that is more fulfilling. However, we can be good stewards for God in the work we do no matter where the job is – at home, in the community, or for a company. When we work with enthusiasm remembering we are working for the Lord in all we do, we can be good stewards for God. When we seek to motivate others in our work and look for ways to add value to them, we can be good stewards for God. The actions and attitudes we have while we are working should show others we are children of God.
Titus 2:7 “And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.” (NLT)
1. Write what you attitude you have about your work.
2. List ways you can remember you are really working for God.
3. Know you are a witness for God in all you do.
4. Remember to be more positive at work and do good works for God.
Dear Lord, we know being good stewards for You is important in our work. Not many of us enjoy working because we feel like we could be doing something else much more exciting and fun. However, we know when we put our focus on You and remember we are working for You, we can be a better example in our work. Help us to be good stewards as we work whether it be at home, in the community or on the job. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Being good stewards for God should be reflected in the work we do for Him.
Ephesians 6:7 “Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (NLT)
We are think of ways we can motivate and help others in the work we do so we can give God the glory.
Hebrews 10:24 “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” (NLT)
We are to work willingly and enthusiastically as good stewards for God remembering we are really working for Him despite the company we work for or the boss we have.
Colossians 3:23 “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (NLT)
