Giving 100%

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men…You are serving the Lord Christ.”
Colossians 3:23,  24b

Over the years I’ve found out that I’m good at doing things partway. For years I’ve done just enough to get by… Do one complete load of laundry just to say that I did laundry even though there’s still three loads piled on the floor, cleaning out the cat litter maybe three days a week, and racking my brain for blog post ideas instead of writing them down as they come to mind.

Something that I’ve realized is that God wants more of me. He doesn’t want me to just skate through life by the seat of my pants, making excuses to avoid the tasks I don’t like. He wants me to give Him 100%. We don’t do things in this life to gain recognition or money. We do them because we love God and want to follow Him and do what He says.

“And the King said to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'”
Matthew 25:40

Let’s remember that no matter what we do, big or small; we’re doing it to bring glory and honor to God (Matthew 5:16) and to serve Him not man.

Until next time,
