Improve your working conditions by primarily serving the Lord and others in your work. We spend a significant part of our lives doing our work. For some, work can be the frustrating and painful toil spoken about in Genesis 3:17. For others, work can be a meaningful and fulfilling career. The difference comes down to for whom we understand that we are primarily working. We learn from Jesus teaching on the greatest commandment and from Paul’s teaching to slaves how to improve our working conditions by working at our labors with all our heart because we are primarily serving God and others.
Next Step: Repeat this mantra in your work, “Whatever I do, work at it with all my heart for I am primarily serving the Lord and others.” Short version: “This is for God and to bring God to others.”
Lessons: Genesis 3:17-19, Colossians 3:22-4:1, Mark 12:28-31
