do your work as a servant of the Lord

1 Thessalonians 4


And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

Like every part of our lives, we should use our careers to be faithful servants of the Lord. When we work, we should do the most excellent job we can, as if we are working for Him.

I know that's something commonly said, so we have probably heard it before and already know it, but hopefully it can be a good reminder. For example, if you feel tired or unmotivated while you are at work today, remember this passage.

That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and [that] ye may have lack of nothing.
