Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work. (MSG) Colossians 3:22-25
This week, I’d like to focus on “Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ”. Often, it’s easy to get sucked into the immediate and what I’m working on, focussing on the earthly things. I can forget that it’s God that I am ultimately serving when I see the here and now in front of me. I’m challenged on a daily basis to keep my mind focussed on things of God whether that may be through listening to worship music and conversing with God during my day.
Each day, I’m challenged to take a step back, out of the details and minutiae, and focus on the big picture and what God wants to do through me so that He receives the glory.
