It’s 3:00 on a Tuesday. Usually, at this point in the day, when I run out of tasks to accomplish in the Donor Services office, I log on to Facebook and find someone to chat with to make the time go by, and once I log on, I rush through any new tasks I’m given so that I can get back to a good conversation.
I miss those conversations. But, at the same time, I can get used to this. I feel so actively engaged in my work today, and while yes there are other factors playing into my positive attitude (I had a GREAT time bonding with Jesus this morning over WM. Paul Young’s “Cross Roads”), I also feel like my mind is 100% present in the office, not in the conversations I could be having via Facebook. It makes me realize something about Colossians 3:23-4:
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
This whole concept of “with all your heart.” I’m sure I am incapable of completely understanding what that looks like, because God’s ways are above our comprehension, and learning to serve Him is a lifelong process. But at a leadership camp I went to a few summers ago, someone pointed out that if we are multitasking, we are only giving either task 50%, and in that case we are failing at both tasks. So if I want to give all my heart to the work God has given me, then for starters, I need to focus on one thing at a time.
Which means, yay I gave up Facebook… but why am I still blogging?
