Colossians 3:22-25 22 Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. 23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for[a] you serve the Lord Christ. 25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality. I have always took this passage to mean that everything you do, do it as your doing it for the Lord. This has always been my thought when it comes to any job I've ever had. I always try to do my best to provide the best service and put forth my best effort/product. Of course I'm fallen, and make mistakes, but generally I'm not only working for a paycheck so to speak but trying my best to work hard for the Lord, and do what I do with integrity. Regarding the now closed thread about church crowds at restaurants, I think I am a bit naive at times to think that my server should put forth the same effort whether they size me up and anticipate a 10% tip or a 40% tip. This goes the same for any business interaction, I would hope that we as Christians hold ourselves to a higher standard, although we realize that the world may not see things this way. In the thread about the church crowd at restaurants this statement was made by a poster. This struck me as odd, and I ask is this sentiment okay or acceptable for Christian business men/women?
