Who Are You Doing It For?
The other side of worship. Have you considered cleaning your house, cooking your family a meal, or running errands for a friend as worship? Have you ever considered the work you do on a daily is worship? Worship goes beyond us doing it corporately with our church family and in our private time.
Yes, I’m asking a lot of questions but it brings me to my point. Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.” This verse is very powerful and inclusive concerning any task that we do. A task is defined as a piece of work to be done or undertaken. Allow this to settle in your spirit. The same honor we give to God in our worship of him holds the same significance in the task that we do on a daily basis.
Sometimes the menial task we do on daily--there is a tendency to murmur and complain about it because there is no grand gesture for it. However, through the menial task we do with the new perspective, that we are doing it as worship unto the Lord, will stir up joy and purpose. Think about it, if we did not do the laundry, our clothes would be soiled and reek of odor. If we fail to respond to emails or answer the calls from customers at work, we would be unemployed. Think about the task we do daily, without these tasks we would fail at producing the final output. All tasks lead to greater output.
Allow the scripture today to rest in your spirit. Meditate (ponder) on it to see what God is saying to you concerning your tasks. As we begin our work week tomorrow, start the day with this scripture in mind and move intentionally in a new perspective.
Every task I do today, I worship God.
Prayer of Focus:
Heavenly Father--- Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to worship you in the tasks I do not find joy in. Thank you for the revelation of this scripture and for allowing me to walk into a new realm of worship unto you. I know some tasks I will never get a pat on the back for and others might not notice, but you do. Thank you Father for allowing me to worship you without an audience---just me and you. Amen.
