I decided one day to work as if the Lord was my boss and that choice made all the difference.
The work became tolerable and best of all I had many opportunities to share my faith because fellow workers noticed I was different.
Treating our work like an extension of our service to the Lord changes our attitude. Pleasing Him motivates us to do our best and inevitably results in the believer’s contentment. A job may be challenging, frustrating or boring but we can be at peace instead of wallowing in negative emotions.
A servant heart can impact other employees as well. Service that is rendered with kindness, grace and humility gets coworkers’ attention which in turn opens up opportunities for ministry to the people with whom we spend hours each day.
Rewards for enthusiastic service on the job can take many forms – including greater personal satisfaction in our work and opportunities to reflect Christ to others. There is also the great joy of knowing that our Father is happy with our performance.
