|If God can do laundry... so can I :)|
(gotta love The Far Side)
God never fails to bless me -- on a very personal & tangible basis -- when I give my time to His children in love. I love the Lord & I love my church family at Madison Park. I love being connected to non-believers in my neighborhood & community. God designed every one of us & that makes every person very special in His eyes.
No matter what we do (a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker), the Bible says we should do it with 100% of our effort - as if to the Lord. A few great scriptures about working hard...
- "Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically." Romans 12:11
- "This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God, who is the Savior of all people and particularly of all believers." 1 Timothy 4:10
- "Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15
I'm busy & get worn out (and occasionally frustrated) but, I am at peace when I am doing the things I believe God has put on my schedule each day. And... "so I will work hard to make sure you always remember these things after I am gone." 2 Peter 1:15
There's nothing better than sharing GOD'S LOVE & HIS GOOD NEWS!
