“And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God, and in accordance with the law and the commandments, to seek his God, he did with all his heart; and he prospered.” -2 Chronicles 31.21
If we do our schoolwork, chores, extracurricular activities, and our job with an attitude that reflects disdain for these things, we will easily lose the opportunity to grow from these experiences and to honour God through them. However, if we do these same things with a spirit of appreciate for the opportunities God has given us and with a positive attitude, we will proclaim our faith and values and love of God and others. We will find God’s hand in all we do, and we will prosper emotionally and spiritually. It may be helpful to ask a friend or parent, “What attitude am I displaying as I do my work?” and make changes where needed.
Prayer: My God, inspire in me an attitude of faith and a desire to glorify you in all I do. Amen
