Who’s the Boss?

bible.com/72/pro.16.3.hcsb

Kids are back to school today, my oldest goes back to work, as does my wife and myself. I’ve got a longer day today where I work than usual, so it is a bittersweet reminder that all of us are back on schedule today.

And so, this verse pops up on the feed to remind me who I am working for. Though it feels like we are all working for the man, we are in truth working for God.

The scriptures talk about doing all of work as unto the Lord, and that’s not a bad idea. Would you work any differently if it was the Lord looking over your shoulder? Would having the Lord working beside you make a difference in how you did your work today?

Or would it make a difference to know that the stuff you do everyday, no matter how insignificant you think it is, actually has eternal effect? Just being honest in our business dealings has a powerful impact our our spiritual walk, that even in this small thing, we will be people of integrity.

Consider today how you work, and for whom. God can make any work worthy when He is in it.

God bless and have a great day!
