As I sit at my desk munching on my lunch, my mind wonders to what it would be like to work for a company that combined their love for the Lord and their business. Please don’t misunderstand me, I am most thankful for my job and the opportunities I have had in my 30 year career. But, what if we started each day with a devotion, there were no foul language used, people worked together to make things happen, security in the work place came back and everyone enjoyed what they were doing!
Most of us have our home life, our work life, and our church life, all in separate little packages.
Even though I think we try, we just can’t turn off our minds and how we participate in each of these little packages and still be the person God wants us to be. When we arrive at the office, do we become another person? Do we put up that wall of defense? Do we forget about God? Do we take the time throughout the day to just “Thank God”? At home, do we let the wall down and let the kindness and love show through or do we take our work stresses out on others? Is our church package everything we need it to be to help us become who God wants us to be?
We are who God has created us to be, and that has to shine in everything we do. But how in the business world do we do that? How do we let our love for God shine above every situation we are faced with throughout the day?
Colossians 3: 23-25 (NKJV) says, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.”
The hardest part is to be open to whatever God may reveal to you, keep your eyes on Him and keep focused. Let God lead the way in your life everyday, not just when it is convenient for you!
