Work Hard? Here's Why!

  Many people work very hard. Of course, that is not a universal trait. But some realize they have responsibilities, opportunities, and are accountable for what they do. So they do whatever they do the best they can. After all, this is the way Christ would have us perform.

  "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ" (Colossians 3:23, 24).

  The Christian realizes he is a child of God and his first allegiance is to the Lord through Christ. He realizes when he works he is not just working for somebody else, not even himself, but the Lord. Does the Lord take that into account? Most assuredly He does and He shall reward accordingly.
