I have been convicted lately about my work ethic – at work. I can sometimes lose focus, or spend time working on non-work related things while at work. I know that this is not right. If I was doing a job, that I knew was directly related to God’s kingdom and I had to report to him every day on what I had done, how I had spent my time, and how I had treated others, would anything be different? Moste likely the answer is yes!
A few of my favourite verses that speak to this.
Colossians 3:17 – 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Philippians 2:14-15 – 14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
