Day 8: For His Glory
Lord, may these children learn to do their work heartily, as working for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Hard work is becoming a lost art. We want everything to be easy and convenient. But neither ease nor convenience are the best teachers. We must make our children learn to work hard and do their best, even if no one notices. If they do not learn to work hard, they will be handicapped in the future. The real lesson, however, is learning to do their work for Lord, offering their efforts to the Lord and trusting Him to crown them with success.
That can be a hard lesson for us, too. Let your example of hard work motivate your children. But more importantly, may they see that everything you do you do it for God’s glory, not your own.
