Put Your Heart Into Your Work

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.—Colossians 3:23 (NIV)

Many people make a big mistake by dreading their work and thinking of it as a period of time they must suffer through. The truth is, work is a blessing. No matter what job you hold, your contribution is necessary and worthwhile. Work can be a source of satisfaction and strength…when you let it.

Dear Lord, help me to recognize the power of work—and to see my job as the blessing it really is.
