Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, – Colossians 3:23 (HSCB)
It’s hard to stay motivated when things are tough. Maybe you tried really hard on a project for school and didn’t get the grade you wanted. Or perhaps you tried out for the basketball team only to find out that you didn’t make the cut. When you try hard but don’t get the results you want it can be really disappointing.
Today’s Bible verse talks about doing all things enthusiastically as if you’re doing them for the Lord. A good way to think about it is in everything you do, treat it as worship to God. So even when you try something and don’t get the results you want, if you’ve done our best, then you can take comfort in the fact that God sees what you’re doing. And God rewards those who are faithful.
In everything you do, do your best. Remember that you’re doing things for God, not for others. So even if doing the right thing is hard, it’s always worth it in the long run. So choose to do things enthusiastically and for God.
