Did you know that the words “work” and “toil” are mentioned over 480 times in the Bible? That alone indicates that God considers our work to be a very important aspect of our lives.
Many scriptures are found throughout the Bible that support the importance of our work to God. Each contain God’s views on work, the importance of our work, or how we should conduct ourselves while performing our work.
Here are four scriptures to help you work with the right motivation today:
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
Colossians 3:23 (see Colossians 3:22- 4:1)
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people.”
And remember, God’s presence is not confined to the walls of the church:
“For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them.”
So today, choose one of these scriptures that speaks to you. Take this verse and keep it by your desk or on your phone, and allow it to be a foundation for your work today.
