Your attitude toward work

God puts a high level of value on work....all work,especially eternal work.

 


"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable,always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain " ( 1Cor 15:58).

 


Remember the example of Epaphroditus! Paul wrote about him to the Philippians: "So receive him in the Lord with all joy,and honour such men,
For he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service to me" ( Phil. 2:29-30).

 


There is no hint here that Paul ever rebuked him or tried to get him to slow down;
Saying Epap you are working too much you will break down ooo if you don't rest... (From the account we read).

 


There's nothing but recommendations!
Obviously he was doing high - quality work.
Our Christian work shouldn't be just shuffling papers, more or less. But to spend our precious time connecting people with God,influencing them towards heaven by every means we can think of --for this,my friends,don't mind getting totally,gloriously exhausted.

 


Now let think about our secular work,
Lydia is a single working lady who deals in expensive fabrics ( Acts 16:14-15).
Priscilla is a working wife who made tent with her husband (18:2-3).
Mary,John Marks mum preside over the running of her home (Acts 12:12).

 


All three became spiritually powerful women and were certainly in God's will in there vocations.
I hope you work,in one way or the other.

Having a good attitude toward work even when no one is watching.

God has plenty to say about work...hard work and its benefits.

"Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and never succeed" ( Pro 12:24 TLB)

 "Lazy people want much but get little while the diligent are prospering" ( Pro 13:4 TLB)

 

"The lazy man is full of excuses, " I can't go to work", he says "if I go outside I might meet a lion in the street and be killed" ( Pro 22:13 TLB)

Hard work never hurt anybody, its only a bad attitude toward work that causes the gears to grind and the tension to mount.

Work done in Gods will should only bring physical fatigue --- from which rest should bounce us back.

Work is God's plan for us,so we must find the work that best suits our gift.
