LAZINESS

Tuesday

 

Colossians 3:23 

 

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

 

 

LESSON

 

Slaves or workers should do their work primarily “for the Lord.” They should also do it “heartily, from the soul. This view of work transforms a worker’s attitudes and performance. Even the most servile work thereby becomes a ministry and an act of worship. All jobs can and should be “full-time Christian work.” Gideon was a farmer; Dorcas, a seamstress; Luke, a doctor; Daniel, a government official; and Lydia, a business woman—to name only a few. God uses all occupations. He means, ‘Don’t keep your eye on the clock. Keep your eye on Christ. He is the One whom you are serving.’ This is the way you ought to do your job. “If you are lazy on the job, you are not dedicated to Jesus Christ.
