Colossians 3:23, Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
Steve Jobs once said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you have not found it yet, keep looking. Do not settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it.”
Do not miss those important words, “And the only way to do great work is to love what you do”. Granted, most of us would have loved to have had Steve Jobs mind and job; however, we probably do not. The Apostle Paul talked about work this way, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,” (Colossians 3:23) Paul is saying that the best way to love your work is to put your heart into it, and the only way to really put your heart into it is to work for the Lord and not simply for your earthly boss.
Give 100 percent at the office today. Who knows, you might find that you love your work more than you think you do when you give it all you’ve got!
Think about it, and have a great day!
