Careful Workmanship
"Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew."
Cicely Tyson (American Actress and Former Fashion Model) -1924-2021

(Colossians 3:23) Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

Today's scripture is meant for us to keep in the forefront of our minds because of the pace the world moves in. Sometimes it is difficult performing work duties with a spiritual attitude that is pleasing to God. Before we had access to the conveniences of technology - time, attention, and interaction were key tools we used to get our work done. We put ourselves into our work. We gave it heart and value. You could say we exercised the kind of careful workmanship God used when He created everything--particularly you and me. To lessen the stress of feeling like you have to meet the status quo, and to approach your work with a sense of expectancy and gratification--just do your work unto the Lord just as He would have you to do. It might not seem so to you at times, but your careful workmanship will open far more doors of opportunity and blessings for you than a quick cut and paste ever will.
