Romans 12:11, Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.

Since this is Labor Day week, I thought I would share five biblical principles throughout the week about … work. Romans 12:11 says, “Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.” Our faith is most evident when we are outside of church, and a lot of that time is spent on the job. The good news about work is that there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of occupations in which you can honor God.

As a Pastor, I’ll even submit to you that you can do a lot more ministry in your occupation than I can do in mine. Reread Romans 12:11,“Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.” Biblical principle #1 is… when you are at the office,work hard and enthusiastically! Your work is important to God, and it’s probably the best place you can demonstrate your Christian faith all week long.

Take care…and have a blessed week at work!
