Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. Ephesians 6:5-8
This week, I have just some random thoughts from this passage… I couldn’t wrap it up nice and neat. So here it is, just thrown out that for you to digest:
Obey authority as if I were obeying God.
Remember I’m obeying God, not man.
It’s a heart attitude.
Do good in everything.
God will reward me, but it may not be in the way I expect.
Keep my focus on following God and serving Him.
