Chris Patton from His Way at Work recommended this video to me, about how to not waste your work, during a conversation we had recently.
“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men.Colossians 3:23 NASB
Louie Giglio of Passion City Church delivered a sermon based on Colossians 3:23 where he explains what it means to do our work heartily. In the video, Louie pointed out 6 main questions we ask ourselves or God when we want to do our work heartily:
- What more can I give?
- What more can I learn?
- How can I
personallyadvance the organizational mission?
- How can I shine (for Jesus)?
- Who can I help?
- Where is my reward?
Basically, these questions stretch our minds. For many of us, work becomes a grind within weeks of entering the workforce or starting a new position. But we know better. We know God has more for us than grinding in our jobs, locked in our cubicles. So, don’t waste your work!
As you watch or listen to the video, ask yourself the questions. Then please share your answers below. We can each learn from others if we’ll only take a minute to listen and share.
