"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Colossians 3:23 (NIV)
There are times in life when we are asked to do something, whether it’s by a parent, coach, or friend, and we don’t always have the best attitude towards that person because their request requires work. Some people are lazy and arrogant. They don’t want to be asked to do something they don’t want to do. What if God asked you to study for a test or take out the trash? Would you do it with joy in your heart and do it to please Him? We are all called to work and to work hard in a way that we are wanting to please God and not man. This is a hard thing to do because not everyone that asks us to do something is asking in the way that Jesus would ask us, but that can’t determine our attitude. We must strive to work with a good attitude because it is pleasing to God. He is the Master we are all called to serve, and when we serve all with a great attitude, we are bringing glory to His name. We all need an upgrade and a better attitude today. Pray that in all you do today, you will do it in a way that pleases God.
