Happy in our work? Daily tasks can be large or small, important or insignificant. We can work in or out of retirement. How does God feel about our work? Is He concerned for the product or the effort?
Think about it. Ultimately I work because of the sense of accomplishment that comes with tackling problems, overcoming obstacles and being able, in the end, to admire the finished product. How about God?
God’s Word: “And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs. (Mark 16:20).
I like to think that God appreciates kicking back and admiring His finished work too. Keep in mind that it isn’t just the big jobs that please Him; simple daily tasks please Him just as well. God just likes clean floors. Whatever we do on a daily basis He will bless as long as we remember that no work is unimportant as long as you and I are happy doing it.
Dear Lord, today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know what God has called you to do; that you will do what God has called you to do; and that God will confirm His work through you with signs and wonders. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34). www.thispassingday.com
