TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Do You “Work With All Your Heart, As Working For The Lord”?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 28, 2012
I have such an awesome story to share with you ladies.
In an attempt to overcome a fear of rejection, a Texas man, Jia Jiang, designed a “rejection therapy” program. Basically, he has to request something crazy–and deserving of rejection–once a day for 100 days. It’s his way of not feeling so bad about rejection!
But on day three, he’d already failed because of a Krispy Kreme employee who went above and beyond to accommodate his over-the-top request!
Take a look at the clip:
When I saw this clip, I thought of the verse:
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving (Colossians 3:23-24).
Jackie Braun is a fantastic example of someone who works with all her heart. She demonstrated that she puts 100% into her job. How many people would do that on a regular basis?
We all have jobs to do every day. Whether it’s work, school or chores, we have our repetitive responsibilities that can get tedious at times, right? But Christ asks that we do our work as if we are serving Him. If you had that in your mind, would you work harder? Would you give more?
Jiang was overwhelmed by Braun’s attention. He was speechless. He never expected that this woman would be so willing to accommodate his needs. And she had to go above and beyond. She wasn’t even sure if she could do it, but she was willing to try. She wanted to try. What a great example of servitude.
Girls, do you go above and beyond “as working for the Lord,” or do you need some work in that area? How does it make you feel when someone goes above and beyond to serve you?
