Mid-Week Boost: Working Right

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. (Colossians 3:23, 24 NLT)

Sometimes it feels like I have been working so long and hard over the years that I am already ready to retire. According to my human development course, I am still in early adulthood--a time in which I should still be choosing a career, so the real work is only just beginning. 

I am a hard worker. And while being hardworking is a quality that most people want to have, sometimes we can let it get in the way of actually enjoying life (at least I do). Do we really need to read that e-mail or respond to that message within 10 seconds? We may not have quantity time given our occupations and our various roles and responsibilities but we ensure that we are using our time in quality ways. Think about this as we finish out this week.

May is almost here.

Four months of 2014 have passed us by.

How will you use your time for the rest of this year?

  1. This is definitely a challenge for those who have already accomplished so much before 30. I often have to remind myself we have way more living to do and I appreciate this reminder to pause every now and then and enjoy life not work so hard through it. Great post!
