Whatever we do – the ‘work of our hands’, however small and insignificant it may seem – matters to God. It’s part of our worship and how we serve others and bear witness to God.
Paul knew that whatever early Christians were doing in worship, in work, indeed in all of life, could be significant to God. What made the difference was doing all these things as working for the Lord. Today’s situations may be different, but that commitment to Jesus as Lord remains the same.
Our worship on Sunday 22 May at 11:00 will be reflecting on this, and the Bible reading is from Colossians chapter 3.
‘‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.”.
