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. Colossians 3:23-24
Dear Jesus, so often I base my motivation to work hard at my job, in my family or at my church on the approval and praise of others. When I do that, I am forgetting about you. When I remember that you sent me into these callings and that you are watching me work and that you are the one at the end of the day that will settle all just accounts with me, then I am not so dependent on other people's encouragements or responses. My opinions don't have to be honored and my "perfect perspective" does not have to be accepted. I can be involved with all my heart even when I am not always recognized or followed. Help me to live for an audience of One! You and you only have my heart. AMEN
"Me and Jesus will live this life of mine. Together we will serve you without regard of your response."
