Work is Worship

"Work becomes worship when you dedicate it to God and perform it with an awareness of his presence." -Rick Warren

Perhaps you believe that your job does little to impact on the world.  Maybe you’re a student who does not think that your schoolwork is significant.  Or you’re a mother who works tirelessly to raise thankless kids.  Many Christians understand God as a distant abstract force in the sky, working as if He’s got many more important things to do than watch you.  This isn’t the God of the Bible.  Christ is right beside you when you work!  If most understood God this way, they would fall on their face to praise Him, and then they would work with more pep in their step!  Work would become worship and very soon your coworkers would know, “There’s something different about her.”

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men (Colossians 3:23, ESV).
