Work as Unto the Lord

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Colossians 3:23 

We are to demonstrate an excellent work ethic! Whatever your lot in life, you are to work like you are working for God – because you are. Even if you have a bad boss, a rotten situation, or a time of tedious boredom, you should work hard to be the very best that you can be. God put you where you are for a reason, and you should strive to be an exemplary resource, even if at that moment hard work does not appear to be to your advantage. You should always look to improve your situation but be a responsible steward of the work before you.  We do this to have a mark of excellence so that the gospel can be seen and that our testimony is effective. How can a sloppy, lazy, irresponsible, apathetic, negative, gossipy, rebellious, or subversive presence in the workplace speak well of your faith? Do your best and you will reap benefits while giving glory to God.
