  1. I hope a good many college students find this post! I have a son who just started studying welding — a great trade, but certainly hard to find the “spiritual side” to it. So good to read Colossians 3:24,25 TRUTH in your words today — Whatever we do, let’s work at it with all our hearts as working for the Lord.

      Amen. I hope some college students/young adults find it too. I’ve shot some short videos to go along with it as I know my own children are more drawn to watching than reading. I feel so passionately about encouraging them – and I love the Colossians reference. Thanks, Michele. I’d love to know what your son thinks – if he will read it.

  2. Rachel,
    What a wonderful parallel in Daniel on this topic. I do believe that if we do everything as if unto the Lord (whether it’s changing a diaper, leading a meeting, working on a project, interacting with co-workers, etc.) we can do it with integrity and Christian character that can speak volumes into a work situation. If we live our life to an audience of One, we are bound to do God’s will in whatever job situation we find ourselves in. It doesn’t have to be an either/or. Great post!
    Blessings,
    Bev xx

      Yes, we can do anything and do it to an audience of One. Thanks, Bev. I also hope the message comes across that we can work hard at our vocation, whatever it is, and be successful and still bring glory to God.

  3. Love this, Rachel! I’m excited for this series! I’ve always thought of our secular work as a sort of mission field, too. In it we are able to reach people who would be turned off by a pastor or priest or who would never set foot in a church. By doing well, the work He provides for us with the gifts He has given us, we have the opportunity to magnify His glory outside the walls of a “church.” Can’t wait to see where you take this!

      Liz, I love that too – how what we do outside the church, as we’re working hard, is just as important as what we do in the church body. I’m glad you’ll be joining this series.

  4. I love the Word of God because the same passage can teach so many different lessons. The story of Daniel has taught me so much already and I thank you for these new lessons.

      Thanks, Miriam. I love it too how God’s Word can speak different things to us as different times. It truly is a living Word.
