Whatever you do, work at it with your whole heart!

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.  Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV)

Whatever it is that you are currently working on, whether it be something grand or something that feels mundane. Do it as if you are working for the Lord and not for yourself or another person. God calls us to do everything for him as we are actually serving him in all that we do.

As a stay at home mum in the current season I am in of little children (5,4,1). I can often feel overwhelmed with all that I have to do each day to stay on top of my to-do lists that are never ending! I often feel like all I do all day is fulfill the requests of my little people and sometimes that can be super draining and feel like I am not achieving what I am called to do. It is in those moments that I need to stop and realise that in this season that is exactly what I am called to do. I am a mother, so I am called to be a mother to my children and that means mothering them as if I am working for the Lord and not for myself.

As the verse continues it states that from knowing the Lord I will receive the inheritance as my reward. I will receive inheritance with the Lord Jesus for serving him in this season of my life. In raising my children I am serving the Lord. (As a side note, I truly believe that not every mum has to stay home with their children, every ones circumstances are different).

So today I challenge you to do all that you do as if you are working directly for the Lord. Whether it be in your home or in your workplace, with family, friends or strangers. Anything you are required to do, do it for the Lord and you will receive your inheritance in Him!
