Faithful in small things (Lesson 2) October 2017

In part 1 of the series “Faithful in Small Things,” we discussed how King David was faithful in his duties because he had a heart for God. (Acts 13:22). God uses our faithfulness in all things as preparation for our future. Even the small tasks (that appeared trivia or non-glamorous) are important. King David’s faithfulness with the sheep was courage in preparation for his kingship. Ou work is more than the completing of tasks.
In next month lessons’ we will discuss three components of our work, which are proficiency in task, attitude, and motive.
  • Proficiency in the tasks.   What is the quality of your work? As ambassadors of Christ, let’s ensure that the quality of our work glorifies God. It is a joy to an employer to trust their employees with the assurance the assignments will be completed professionally. Our work is to consistently proficient, preferably distinguished. King David was a great example. He was a great shepherd for his father and family. When he was enlisted in Saul’s army, he was a valiant and victorious soldier. He was also a great worshiper.
  • Attitude.     Let’s complete our work with thanksgiving to God “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in ChristJesus for you” (Thessalonians 5:18). We are to be thankful because God has given us this day as an opportunity to honor Him. We rejoice because He causes all things to work together for our good (Romans 8:28). God often uses small and various situations to chip away at our pride. Can you lay down will to complete the mission God assigned to you? Are you able to move past your feelings and follow and follow Christ when don’t agree or don’t understand? When Jesus laid down His life on the cross, it was not because He desired to be ridiculed or have nails driven through his hands. He did it because it was the will of the Father. He cried out in anguish ” Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me. Yet not my will but yours be done” (Luke 22:42).
  • Motive.   What is your true motivation at work? Is it to get attention? Is it to earn a promotion? Do you generally and consistently give your best work? If not, why? Is it because you are angry? Is it because something happened that is outside of the will of God? Or is it because events did not unfold in accordance to the way you thought it should? Do you only give your best if you like your supervisors or co-workers? Our work is a living testimony and one of the means in which we honor God. We should always honor God in serving through the right spirit. We should never serve God (in kingdom work) with wrong intentions and a haughty heart. “Whatever you do, do it whole-heartily unto the Lord, Walk as God pleasers and not pleasers of men, knowing that your inheritance and rewards come from the Lord for you serve the Lord Christ (Colossians 3:23-24)
