The Numbers

You are not defined by the numbers.

You are not defined by the numbers on your report card.

You are not defined by the numbers on your jeans.

You are not defined by the numbers in your bank account.

You are not defined by the numbers on social media.

You are not defined by the number of years you’ve lived.

You cannot be defined… except by God.

A Willing Worker

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24

God loves a cheerful worker.

I know it’s hard to be cheerful when you’re working on unpleasant tasks, but it actually makes the time go a lot faster. Here are some ways to stay willing and cheerful when the chores attack.

  • Dwell on your favorite Bible verse
  • Sing along with the radio or your favorite playlist (especially Christian songs!)
  • Smile and laugh
  • Think of jokes, and, if you’re working with someone else, share them!
  • Make it fun!
