Col 3:23 - 24

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.


Do all things for the glory of God. NO matter how small or how big it is, don't forget to work on it not just for your own sake but for God. What does this really mean?


Serving God is not limited on being part of the ministry, being a preacher, being an evangelist etc. Serving God is about dedicating everything that you do for Him. On our everyday lives, we individually have our own schedules and things to work on. Sometimes we view our work as something done for our own selves.


Christians should be good stewards. Whether we are an employee, a businessman, a professional, we are ought to do it with excellence as for God commanded us to work on things with all our hearts, right? There is no excuse. If we will simply learn to do things for the glory of God, I'm quite sure that we would be able to do things far more than the expected.


Let me give you an example, I have a new dog in our house. At first, we are just tying him anywhere. Somehow it stinks that's why my parents decided to build a cage for that new dog. My father did not buy a cage and so he grabbed some scrap metals and combined them to create a somehow decent doghouse. Since its for scrap, my father asked me to paint it. At first I thought it was a fun task to do but later on I realized that it's a little bit tiring because I'm not used to it.


Then a certain conviction tells me to pray. As I was praying, I was reminded of Colossians 3:23. Though I was tired, I sincerely prayed and thanked God about the dog, about those painting experience. I realized that even if its not human, still we need to be good stewards of everything God gave us.


Sometimes, we only become good stewards about big and valuable things. Again, being good stewards should not show selectiveness on things being take care of. The bible says "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,".
