From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

Whatever you do………..

That’s good enough. I’ve heard that said many times. Even though perfection is sometimes an eluding thing, as Christians I believe that scripture is clear we should strive to do our best in everything we do. No matter who we are serving here on earth we should always have the mindset that we are serving our Lord. After all our actions reflect on Him always.
After I read Oswald Chambers the other day a thought really resonated with me. Jesus calls me friend. I should stand loyal to Him. His honor is at stake in my life. If I do a task sloppily it reflects poorly on my friend (Jesus).
The Proverbs 31 woman knows that if it isn’t excellent she shouldn’t set it out for sale. She knows that her work reflects on her husband and her God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 says it well, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
Our actions should reflect Colossians 3:23 “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.”
Everything we do or don’t do reflects on our attitude toward God. Our every move is a testimony to our love for God. People see it in us and know that they can depend on us because we depend on Him. There is no such thing as “good enough”.
