Vital signs- Sunday, October 17th, 2021


No matter what you do, whether you're a truck driver, an attorney, a cook, student or a teacher,do more than the minimum. Don't just get by. God wants you to go beyond the normal and surpass what is required of you. Our verse today tells us to exceed the expectations of your boss, exceed the expectations of your customers. That is the kind of work God blesses. We live in a culture of mediocrity. How many times do we complain about shoddy workmanship or poor service or inferior quality? Americans used to take pride in their craft, but today it has become about just getting by. So many people just put in their time, do the minimum that's required of them and cut corners, getting by on as little effort as possible. That's the bad news. The good news is that this makes it very easy to stand out at work. Any time you take pride in your work and decide to do more than expected, you'll rise to the top. Another reason we should exceed in our work is because we represent Jesus Christ. And Jesus said,”If someone demands that you go one mile, go with him two miles." (Matthew 5:41)


Exceed what's expected of you and watch God bless it.
