Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
This verse is a great reminder of how we are supposed to use the gifts God has given us and why. Every time we use the gifts God has given us we have the opportunity to serve Him. That is our real purpose. We weren’t meant to use them to impress others, to make ourselves look good, or even to gain anything for ourselves. The gifts we have been given were meant for us to use to serve God. So, whatever you do today do it with a heart that wants to serve God.
Thank you for the gifts you have given us. Help us to continue to seek out how you would have us use them to serve you and those around us. Thank you for the opportunities you give us to love others and to show them how much you love them as well. Help us to use the gifts you have given us well. Amen.
