Seek Excellence and Integrity Always
There are some people who will do anything to gain the favour of their employers in order to keep getting promoted in the workplace. They would play all sorts of office politics just to achieve this.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good and hard workers though. But when the boss around, they are the perfect picture of diligence. They do all the right things.
However, as soon as the boss’ back is turned, their insincerity, poor workmanship, lack of expertise, etc come into full display. They have perfected this so much that only the highly discerning boss will be able to tell!
Anyway, while we may be able to get away with this cunning way of attaining progress in the human marketplace, we cannot get away with this kind of attitude as workmen in Yahweh’s vineyard.
This attitude, though it may have been brought into the church and may get rewarded here on earth, will never get us the eternal reward which is the ultimate.
Whether you know it or not you are being observed constantly. Your earthly boss may not see what you do in secret, but your heavenly boss sees what you do in the secrecy of your heart as well as that which you do publicly.
The LORD will reward, not that which the human eye can observe, but that which lies buried deep within our hearts and souls which no one, other than he, can see. Let’s check our hearts of worship and ensure we are right in secret as well as in public.
Father, thank You because You reward everyone justly for all that we do in secret and publicly. Your reward system is not like the world’s, but is based on that which You know is true.
Please help us to seek excellence and integrity always, but never as an eye service in order to gain favour. Help our heart to be true and faithful both publicly and secretly in Yeshua’s mighty name. #Selah.
Have a glorious day and stay safe under the blood 🩸 Agape ❤️
