Be Enthusiastic in Your Work If you want your work to be blessed by God, the first thing you must do is start working enthusiastically.

Enthusiasm is not based on how fun your job is or how much it pays; it's based on why you do what you do. In fact, the word enthusiasm comes from the Greek words en theos which mean "in God." If you want to be enthusiastic about your work, remember these three things: Your work is a test from God -- "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much But if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property, who will give you property of your own?" (Luke 16:10-12 NIV) God is watching what you do, even when no one else is -- "Work hard so God can say to you, "Well done.' Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work." (2 Timothy 2:15 LB) Your attitude determines your joy -- "The diligent find freedom in their work; the lazy are oppressed by work." (Proverbs 12:24 MSG) You can't succeed in life until you change your attitude about the work you are doing right now. Romans 12:11 says, "Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically." (NLT)

“not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬
