LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

Whatever your do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people Colossians 3:23 (CEB)

I have seen what is best for people here on earth. They should eat and drink and enjoy their work, because the life God has given them on earth is short. God gives some people the ability to enjoy the wealth and property he gives them, as well as the ability to accept their state in life and enjoy their work. They do not worry about how short life is, because God keeps them busy with what they love to do.  Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 NCV

 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.  Matthew 5:16 NKJV

 Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; Proverbs 22:29a NKJV

 HOW CAN I EXCEL IN MY WORK?

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.   Proverbs 16:3 CEB
