"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Colossians 3:17
This morning, I have to admit that I was not looking forward to another work week. Is it Monday already? Then I read this week's message from Pastor Zac Poonen on faithfulness in small things.
And as I was reading Genesis 30, again the same message was reiterated. Jacob worked hard and faithfully for his uncle Laban, even though Laban was an unrighteous idolator. Yet, Jacob was confident that his industrious nature would make provision for him in spite of Laban's trickery (Genesis 30:33). The Laban's of the world will not prevail for God sees all (Genesis 31:6-12).
Everything we do is an opportunity for ministry. An opportunity to be used by God as a light unto others. An opportunity to better understand the heart of a servant, the meaning of obedience, and the importance of diligence.
May you start off this week with a Godly attitude of gratitude, determining to do all to the glory of God (including our secular jobs); showing ourselves faithful, even in little things.
