But let every man prove his own work, and then he shall be rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. Galatians 6:4
It’s Monday and time to share something good. I was a little down over the weekend, but I was still able to play with my grandson, spend time with my husband, clean my house, get to know my kitten a little better and write half a word study paper on judging. I will share more on the paper later. On top of all of that, I made two new friends. One is from Holland and the other from Georgia. Meeting these two ladies reminded me that when we think we have it bad, there is always someone who has it worse. I’m glad God brought these ladies into my life and I hope that I can be a comfort to them.
For many people Monday’s mean we “have to” go to work and do what we don’t want to do for a long week. This type of thinking leads to a bad attitude. Have you ever considered what a privilege it is to work? There are many people who are not able to work. Have you ever considered that when we work we are pleasing God? Work is mentioned many times in the Bible, and Galatians 6:4 states that when we prove our own work, we can rejoice in what we have done. Have you ever thought maybe this is the week you can help your boss in a new way that will make his/her work be easier, better and less time consuming? If you want blessings from God, you must submit to authority. That means doing your job the best you can when you are at work and trying to help your supervisor. The attitude you adopt when you approach Monday or the first day of your business week can make a huge difference. Yes, there will be those who are gloom and doom and who will try to bring you down today, but you can choose a different attitude. Try it. You will be so much happier.
Enjoy new opportunities today! God bless you.
