A Prayer for Work
By Emma Danzey
Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
As we continue to be faithful and diligent in the careers and positions God has provided, it is good to be reminded that we do not work for men, but for the Lord. Colossians reminds us that whatever we do, whether that be a mailman, a hair stylist, a physician, or a teacher, we do this job for the glory of God. We work at it with all of our hearts. When we know that our work is a calling and a mission field for Christ, we are much more likely to be grateful and positive even in the mundane and difficulties within the work. Challenges arise for everyone, but when we have the light of Christ, He gives us the opportunities to reveal His love and existence.
