5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, 8 because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

Obedience with a sincere heart. How beautiful that is. Not looking for anything in return. No hidden agendas. Just what you see is what you get sort of obedience. Serving others as if we were serving God. And how are we to be serving God? Wholeheartedly!

How many times have I fallen short of this? I find myself putting less than my whole heart into my work. I don’t give my very best when I am serving others all of the time. Jesus has never given less than His very best for me! Lord, help me to serve others with that same spirit. Help me to see others as an opportunity to serve you. Help me to see you in them. Thank you for seeing in me something worth giving your all for. Let me carry that on to those you bring across my path today! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
