My Daily Devotional

Be The Light For Others

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.”
Colossians 3:23-24

The Bible gives us much insight as to how we should approach our jobs. I realize that many of you go to work each day in a hostile work environment, where people come against you, many times simply because you are a Christian. If you are facing a situation like this, I want you to realize that it is no coincidence you work where you do, as God has put you there for a reason. Where ever you are as a child of God, you are expected to live up to the standards of God, not down to the standards of the world. God tells us that we are to do our very best, and work with all our heart to please the Lord. When we know the Lord, we should be the best workers at our jobs, and not just be there to earn a paycheck. We should be the ones at our organizations that set the example for others to see. God has placed you where you work to be a witness for Him, to be the light for others, so that the people you come into contact with, who are hurting, and looking for strength and hope, will know that they can come to you, and then you can share your faith in Jesus Christ with them. I would encourage you to take time before your day begins, and pray for God to help you be the best example you can be. Pray to God that He will let your light shine bright so that others who are hurting, will come to you seeking your wisdom. This will give you the opportunity to pray and share with them the hope and love of Jesus. Look at your jobs as a ministry, where God has placed you. It is not by accident that you work where you do.

Robert William Brock, Jr. I was born in Pineville, Kentucky, the son of Robert William Brock and Irene Napier, I grew up in the beautiful southeastern part of Kentucky. I attended Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky graduating with a degree in Business Administration and Accounting. Early in my career I became interested in Health Care Administration and spent the rest of my career in Hospital Administration, where I retired after 45 years. After retiring from health care I have devoted the past ten years to a ministry, having founded and directed the Nehemiah Network, which provides assistance to the needy people in our area, by bringing together the numerous community organizations, churches and businesses to work collectively to meet the community needs. The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network. I am a published author of 17 Christian books, and have spent over thirty years tracing my ancestors and writing a book about my Kentucky Heritage.
