This video’s such a strong rebuke and reminder for me, particularly during this season of my life. May the Lord bless the people who created this!
On the other hand, as I meditated on the message that it was trying to convey, I was reminded of Paul’s call to the church at Colosse:
“Slaves, obey in everything those who are earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.
Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.”
— Colossians 3:22-4:1 (ESV)
I pray we’d all learn to move away from the dichotomy of work and worship. Let’s remember that our work is our ministry. Our place of work is our mission field. We have been planted there for a purpose!
And by the Lord’s grace, may we all stand as salt and light wherever we may be!
