Bring Your Love and Work Together

“Do all your work in love” (1 Corinthians 16:14 TEV).

The apostle Paul says, “Do all your work in love” (1 Corinthians 16:14 TEV).

He doesn’t say some of your work but all of your work. He also says that no matter “what I do, I'm bankrupt without love” (1 Corinthians 13:3 MSG).

The point is, any job can be turned into worship when it is built on the model of Christ's love; that love is expressed to co-workers, clients, and customers.

Think about it like this: Two-thirds of the word “career” is C-A-R-E. The English philanthropist John Ruskin once said, “When love and skill come together, expect a masterpiece.”

So, I want you to pray a prayer every day this week — whether it's at home or at school, in your backyard, or at an office or wherever you work. I want you to pray, “Father, today I want to worship you through my work. I want to express my gifts. I want to do it as if I'm doing it for you, and I want to do it in love."

“So then, my friends, because of God's great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer” (Romans 12:1 TEV).

Talk It Over

  • How can you worship God through your work?
  • How would your co-workers characterize you by the way you treat others?
  • What are the gifts God has given you? How are you using your gifts in your work or career?
