11.5.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Working For His Glory

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• So have you ever noticed how each generation has a sort of style about their handwriting?
You can sometimes look at a list someone made and make a fairly educated guess about what era they grew up in…
Today, I downloaded two new (free!) fonts as I do every Monday and the font on today’s graphic was one of them.
It reminded me of my grandmother’s handwriting (though neater).
It reminded me of that time in history when people embraced the idea that you work hard, don’t live beyond your means, and the simpler time that generation tends to represent.
But it really wasn’t simple…
Slower, yes, but they dealt with economic uncertainties, war, and the same kind of issues we deal with…
Minus the computer technology and social media drama we get to “enjoy.”
It’s the work ethic of that generation that I greatly admire…
You did a job with pride and you did it well…
If it had your name attached to it, you weren’t content with anything less than the best.
Things aren’t always like that these days.
We’re so busy and in such a hurry to cross things off the list that the attention to detail and pride in a job well done can be pushed to the side.
But in 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul wrote, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
It’s Monday and a brand new week.
Let’s slow down and embrace the work ethic modeled by earlier generations who took life a little slower than we do today…
And most of all, in all we do — do it not for personal praise, or to please others, but to God’s glory.
Today, as you pray, thank the Holy Spirit for the opportunity to work.
Ask Him to help you work with a good attitude, and in all you do, let it be done with a grateful heart for God.
