Heartily for the Lord

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Genesis 39:1-6; Colossians 3:22-24

Joseph being sold to be a slave and eventually a worker in Egypt was not a circumstance he would have chosen. Yet he made the most of his situation, and Genesis 39:1-6 makes it quite clear that God blessed his efforts.

As I thought about how difficult it must have been for Joseph to be a captive in a foreign country, missing his family and all the things he was accustomed to (food, relationships, clothing, religion, etc.), Paul's instruction from Colossians 3 came to mind.

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ" (Colossians 3:23-24).

Is your daily mindset one of "working heartily for the Lord"? If not, what's one thing you can do differently today to start changing your attitude/mindset? Why is it important for our outlook to be one of working for God? Tami
