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. (Colossians 3:23-24)
Okay, here we are at Monday morning. How are you feeling? Before you answer that, let’s shift gears for just a minute.
When it comes to living out your faith in practice, have you noticed that it’s hard to maintain your spiritual edge on Monday? Where is the God who was so clearly with you on Sunday? On Sunday it seems easy to be with God. But Monday is a whole different story. The rules change. It’s a new world–we hustle and work to put out fires.
Interestingly, God also works on Mondays. The Bible says God is a worker–that you are His workmanship. Your work matters to God. He is with you and invites you to join Him in what He is doing in your life–especially at work.
You spend more hours working than in any other activity in life. Why waste it? Work is also where you face most of your faith challenges while in full view of the majority of your relationships.
What if God actually cares more about your Monday than Sunday?
Your work is valuable to God. He never intended any part of your life to be kept apart from a relationship with Him. In fact, God has big plans for your work–plans to bless you and to bring him glory.
So go through your workday today with an attitude of, “Thank God It’s Monday!”
