“Labor of Love”

Go to work in the morning and stick to it until evening without watching the clock.  You never know from moment to moment how your work will turn out in the end.

-Ecclesiastes 11:6

“God says that any job, any ministry, is profitable.  Don’t look at the clock, wishing the time away.  If you are too exhausted to reach out with God’s love for others, then reevaluate what the Lord would have you do in service for Him.  But don’t hold out on serving Him because you are too “tired.”  He gave us His all because of His love.  Respond in love for Him and give your all, showing His love to others.”

Father, may I find joy in serving You today – because of Your love.

I feel that this can be difficult for me to remember this at work.  In the service industry, you meet a lot of “interesting” people, some of which treat you horribly for no good reason.  As hard as it can be, sometimes we need to take a step back and reevaluate the situation.
