Do Your Best and God Will Bless

Genesis 39:23, “The keeper of the prison paid no attention to anything that was in Joseph’s charge, because the Lord was with him. And whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed.” ESV

I have been blessed in all of the places I worked with enjoying complete trust. It was not that I was great, it was that I serve a great God and he blessed whatever I did.

I never worked for a large salary. In fact, one job, that I am the most proud of, was I finished the card catalogue in my hometown library before I moved away.

The library was new and the city received a grant to hire someone to type up the cards. When the grant money ran out, the job was not complete. I spent a spring and summer typing the cards during the two afternoons the library was open…as a volunteer!

It doesn’t matter if you are working in a prison, working as a volunteer, or working at a highly lucrative position. Do your best and God will bless your work.
