“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” Colossians 3:23
This is a verse that I memorized when younger, but as time has waned, only had it “half-way” memorized. As I meditated on this verse, I began to realize that I have never fully embraced the meaning of this verse. I always thought of the “doing it heartily” part, but that is not the whole. As believers, our tasks should be done “as to the Lord.” That means that when I unload the dishwasher, I am not doing it for Mom; I am doing it for the Lord. When I rebel against helping my sister make her bed, my attitude isn’t against her but against the Lord. This puts a new perspective on my work. I should view every task as an opportunity to show my love and obedience to Christ (John 14:15).
