Do Everything with Excellence

Today's Scripture
"Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward." (Colossians 3:23-24)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Striving to live a life of excellence is possible when you begin to understand and act out today's passage. Don't work just for your boss or for a paycheck. Instead, work for God. When you love your family and show true friendship and kindness to others, it's as if you are doing that for Jesus too! When your focus is on God in whatever you do, you are living out His exciting purpose for you. That's why God wants you to put your whole heart into everything you do . . . every day. And when you give your best effort for God, He promises to reward you. Your life can be transformed by practicing this very basic principle of seeking to please and honor God in all you do.
A Prayer for Today
God, help me become a person who, through Your power, chooses to live my best life now and refuses to settle for second best. Thank you for being so generous as to reward me for those things I do for Your sake. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
