Pray Thank You for this day Father. A gift from You that I never want to take for granted. So I will work with a clear focus that everything I do is in honor of You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Reflection You may have the dream job or career, or not, but that’s not the point. What’s most important is the effort you place in the work that you perform. What are you pouring in or taking out of your work? What are you pouring in or taking from the people that you work with and the customers that you’re supposed to be serving? If you aren’t leading through service of others, then ask yourself why? It is not only in the church that we serve. It is not just the volunteer activities in the community, that you are in service of others. It should be each and every day that you wake. Every single day that you go to work you should be serving your co-workers, and the customers and vendors that the company has relationships with.
Because we are reflections of God, and as His servants, we should be serving each other. Jesus washed his disciples feet, he didn’t just sit back and let everyone wash his. Jesus showed us what being a servant leader truly means. He paid the biggest price, sacrificed the most, so the least we can do is “work heartily” for the Lord. God will always reward us for our efforts. We get what we give. Consider that.
