I remember as a child doing schoolwork believing that whoever did it the fastest did it best. I still see children trying to rush through their homework not only to just get it done, but to show they are good at it. We all know what happens when we rush through things; mistakes are made. Even as adults, we try to cross the next thing off our “to do” list perhaps to show how competent we are and the amount of things we can get done in a day. Rushing through any task will cause errors.
In the things we are called to do, or make a choice to do, we need to have God involved in it. Our work is more than slapping something together and calling it good. Thankfully, that’s not how God creates. God put great love into all of his work. If the Lord is in what we do, all we do should be for him.
Prayer: God, I thank you for all the things you have for me to do each day. I pray that I not rush through them and take pleasure in serving you through these tasks. Amen
Faith Tip: Invite God to join you in all you do and experience the joy of serving God fully.
