PITFALL 3: DEALING WITH MEDIOCRITY-6
Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.” (GNT)
5. GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT
In our focal scripture, Paul wrote to the believers at Colosse and he encouraged them to face their work and do it with the whole of their being as if they were working for God. That is a very serious statement and we must all understand it in depth.
As a believer, it simply means you must ask yourself certain questions, such as; Who am I working for? Who is really going to pay my wages? As a student, who will mark my papers? Who will inspect my work? Who will recommend me for promotion?
The bottom line is this, when you see God as your employer, your attitude to several things will change. The problem most people are having is that, they think the “boss” they are seeing is the one that employed them and since they don’t like the man or because he is a mediocre, they don’t really care how they handle the job.
Friend, think about this, if you’re working directly with the governor of your state or the president of your country, will you be working the same way you’re currently doing?
Is the quality of your current job and output good enough for the palace? Is it of an acceptable standard to the nobles and to royalty? Can the kings of this world send for you because of the kind of job you do?
If God decided to come down physically to recruit people that will work with Him, will you qualify? We’ve seen all through scriptures that God does not employ men with mediocre dispositions. Let’s look at the qualification of a man God used in the construction of the Ark of Covenant:
Exodus 31:1 “GOD spoke to Moses:”
Exodus 31:2 “”See what I’ve done; I’ve personally chosen Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur of the tribe of Judah.”
To be continued…
