Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord and not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Lord Jesus, is my heart always in it? You really know the answer to the question better than I. What I mean is that as I go about my day, there are some things that seem so routine and normal – like making my bed, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the kids to school, sitting in school or at work… When I fail to see the purpose behind them, they can easily become a burden for me. They shouldn’t, though, so forgive me when they do. For even the seemingly mundane tasks of today are anything but meaningless. Rather, they’re ways that I’m serving you, the One who came to serve me and give his life as a ransom for me that I might receive an inheritance in heaven. Mindful of this awesome truth, today I am looking forward to serving you with all my heart, even in the small things I do. Amen.
