• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Whatever You Do


Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
COLOSSIANS 3:23

The life of slaves in the Roman Empire was not easy. They were regarded as 'things', and they had no rights. Some had good masters and challenging work, but most were given menial tasks to perform. They worked long hours with little rest.

Whether we are slaves or masters, we must do our work with dignity. Ultimately, each of us should be working for the Lord because the final commendation will come from Him.

Someone captured the heart of this truth when he observed. "If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote Poetry. He should sweep streets so well that the hosts of Heaven will pause to say, "Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

Your work may be tedious. You may have an employer who doesn't appreciate you or pay you what you are worth. You may want to quit. But you are working for the Lord. Do your daily work so that your Master in Heaven can one day say to you, "Good job. Well done."

It is important that we respect our superiors and everyone in general. But it is even more important that we respect God and understand that even when the Boss is not there, God is watching. He knows if we are doing our job well or if we are slacking. Eventually our boss will know too because the quality of our work will reflect it.

Do what you are asked to do, and do it with joy. God will rejoice in your hard work.
