To obtain joy, it should be acquired from the outside, but from within. This holiday season is an ideal time for joy, but it should not solely be the reason why we spread joy to others around us. God’s excellency is what we must proclaim and publicize so that His name and Word are known. In fact, as His most precious sons and daughters, we have to be excellent in everything we do in the light of His presence. What God creates and provides for us is ascribed in His handiwork. Philippians 4:8 states:
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything, worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
We don’t have a choice but to become better for God. To do the work heartily for the Lord shows our excellence and devotion to Him. We are all responsible for the things and tasks that God has assigned for us to do. Similarly to how a teacher instructs a student, it is a reflection of what God is instructing us to do. So, ask yourself in His name: Have we done our very best? And have we given our very best?
May God Bless You All.
