Barb is the hostess this month; and, she put this verse and challenge out to us:
Colossians 3:23 --Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
The Living Bible version-- --Work hard and cheerfully at all you do, just as though you were working for the Lord and not merely for your masters
I think we all work hard at many things in life--so I want to challenge you to think of what you might work hard at, but cheerfully. You can take this a few ways:
~Perhaps--you can take a picture of what you would do as a career, if you could "be anything you want to be" when "you grow up". The sky is the limit--no restrictions at all. What is a job you would love to have?
~Or--look around and see what you love to do in life. It could be cooking, or crafting, or gardening, or reading, or whatever....... What do you do that always puts a smile on your face or gets you in a good mood?
~Maybe--you have a different thought of what this passages says to you. Please feel free to share.
Tell us how this verse rings true to you.
No, I don't want to make snow.....nor do I love to shovel. BUT, I do.....as does my darling husband. And, we gladly do it for our neighbors as well.....
I think this verse calls us all to do things cheerfully. We may not want to do these 'chores', but is it easier to do with a smile or as a grump?? Yep, with a smile. And, that is why my family does it together. We are fortunate to be able to do it, and God knows that it can be accomplished.....so, many hands make light work of it. And not only do we smile, but so do our neighbors!
