Bring Your Love and Work Together

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

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 The Message).

The point is that any job can be turned into worship when it is built on the foundation of Christ’s love. When that happens, his love is expressed through you to co-workers, clients, and customers. Mother Teresa said, “It’s not what you do so much that matters, but how much love you put into it.”

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 your neighborhood, 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 GNT).
