Last week I was lucky enough to get to go out to SEMA with the Maxlider crew.
The team built a super cool 4 door Bronco that placed in the top 3 for trucks in the Battle of the Builders competition (it’s kind of a big deal).
Every time I’m lucky enough to be around “great work” I am reminded of this bible verse:
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. Colossians 3:23-24
Doing great work requires working heartily.
Working heartily requires a certain amount of motivation.
Working for the Lord seems pretty motivating to me.
The team did something exceptional in building that Bronco. They came together and use their skills and talents to create something unique and meaningful and they were recognized by their peers as such.
And this is all wonderful and good.
What about the rest of us though?
Those whose talents and job duties lie in an area that doesn’t generate as much buzz and TV coverage?
Whatever we do – do it heartily – as if for the Lord – because there is an even bigger reward waiting for us.
Give it all you got today.
Do great work.
You’re worth it.
Make it a great day.
