Do right things and do things right
CAROLINE L. BELTRAN, Baguio City

On the front page of the Baguio Midland Courier’s Aug. 26, 2018 issue, was a photo captioned “Sign of inefficiency.”

Inefficiency is being incapable of bringing about a desired result with little waste of time or energy. Efficiency is doing things right, according to author Blanchard.

The caption stated that “Those dangling wires are unsightly and dangerous, and they reflect the kind of service these utility firms offer to their client.”

If men are called to repair their dangling wires, they should repair them effectively or do the right things – even as Michelangelo painted, or as Beethhoven composed music, or as Shakespeare wrote poetry. These repairmen should put those unsightly and dangerous utility wires so well that the hosts of heaven will pause to say: “Here are great workers who do their job well.” Colossians 3:23 reminds us: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”

Work may be tiring of length and dullness. Others may have employers who do not appreciate them or pay what they deserve. You may want to quit. We get weary of our work at times and want to give up, but we can stay the course if we understand that we are working for our Lord.

God is our employer who sees and knows all we do. He values what we do and why we do it. Knowing that God cares about our work gives meaning to all our actions, even those no one else notices and appreciates.

Ephesians 6:7-8 are loud and clear: “Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is a slave or free.”

To do our work as to the Lord gives us the motivation to always do our best because we want His commendation.

No matter who the boss is, we are really working for the glory of God.
