“With all this going on for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.” 1 Cor. 15:58 (The Message)
“Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ.” Col. 3:23-24 (The Message)
My husband and I have a favorite movie that is entitled “Return to Me.” At one point, a granddaughter asks her grandfather, “Do you want any help, Grandpa?” To which he responds, “No thank you Gracie, I’m blessed with work.”
What an attitude!
On this Labor Day, may we remember that what we do–our work, our parenting, our teaching, our volunteering, our writing, whatever–is a blessing from our Father, we ultimately work for Him, and He deserves our best.
