Why do we so often allow the thoughts and words of men decide what we do? Sometimes we get involved with so many different things and then we realize that there isn’t any heart behind what we are doing. We realize that we are doing the things we do solely because we are doing it for fame or recognition. When we do things by way and standard of man there will always be a missing piece of our heart. You have to check your heart to ensure that you are in a good place with God and with yourself.
We must realize that we are working for the Lord wherever God has placed us and in whatever we are doing. So ask yourself this question, Do I go the extra mile to make a difference for the Lord, even if there isn’t any physical reward for me? We must not hesitate to go the extra mile willingly for God because He will always do that for us. We need to always check our hearts and be concerned with our Fathers business rather than the opinion of the world. Set your eyes on God and make Him the center of your life.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,”
