A verse for the day

A friend of mine posted this verse on Facebook today and I feel compelled to share it.

Colossians 3:23
Work willingly at whatever you do,
as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

I really liked the New Living Translation. When I informed my kids of all the chores that they will be doing this morning, we wrote this up on our chalkboard wall in the kitchen. We read it out loud and pondered it for just a moment.

It really lifted their spirits and mine as well. I'm sure we'll have our chores done in no time and we'll be able to enjoy the rest of this glorious God given summer day!

This is also very timely for my oldest son today. He headed out this morning to do some construction type work for a friend. (And yes, it's a paid job, alleluia!!) There he goes....

Hi Leah! I love that verse! I shared that w/ my kids the other day because they were serving at church. It's never about "us", it's always about the Lord, and serving Him!!

And look at your son! That would so be me, taking pictures!!!!!!
