Inspirational Free Printable Quote – Charles Spurgeon Quote Wall Art
Maybe you’re wondering to yourself, “Well, HOW can I labor for Him?”
Any work that you do for the intention of pleasing God is laboring for Him.
- Maybe you’re washing dishes.
- Maybe you’re chasing after a toddler.
- Maybe you’re pounding the pavement hard and spreading the gospel
- Or working in the VBS program at your church.
Any work that you do FOR the Lord is laboring to Him.
So why dishes?
Well, God has called you, as a woman, to keep your home. When you obey Him, you are doing what He asks you to do…laboring for Him.
If you are doing dishes for Him, to obey Him, with that as your motivation, then yes, it’s laboring for Him.
Now if you’re doing the dishes for yourself or something like that, it’s not laboring for Him.
It’s all about the heart. What is your heart’s motivation?
If your heart is to serve Him, and to serve others as an extension of serving Him (Genesis 18:1-8; Hebrews 13:2), then you are laboring for Him.
👉 Laboring does not have to mean grueling, back breaking work.
I serve on this blog. I pour my life out, my time, my energy, my expenses toward serving others. It’s not for myself. It’s not for any other reason. I do it for Christ.
And when I am working on the blog, creating things for you, whether that’s a printable like in this post, teaching in another blog post, or simply talking to an audience member through email, any of it, if I’m doing it with the motivation of wanting to please God, wanting to be used by Him to show HIS glory to the world, that is laboring for Him.
It’s not back breaking work. It’s not grueling (although sometimes it can get busy 😂). For the most part, it’s not HARD work. It’s light, restful, peaceful, streamlined, systematized work.
I peacefully work this blog. I peacefully and joyfully create a printable or wall art or whatever it may be. I am serving my Lord. And it brings me GREAT JOY! Truly, when I AM serving others in His name, I find the MOST joy of anything in my life.
Why? Because I know I am making God happy and it’s the biggest desire of my heart to please Him. It’s really that simple. 🥰
