Have you ever seen the movie Groundhog Day will Bill Murray? It’s about a man who continues to live the same day over and over. He learns from his mistakes and each time he tries to improve on his day based on what he learned.
I don’t know about you, but there are times I wish I could have a do-over on a day myself; however, we don’t get do-overs. We have twenty-four hours each day to make the best of it. Win, lose, or draw, at the end of the day what’s done is done. There are some people we cross paths with each day, so we will have the chance to do what we failed to do or make amends if we messed up; yet there are some people we have a chance encounter with and never see again. We’re given one shot to speak life or death into them. We can be part of their problem or part of their solution. We can be a good witness for Christ or a bad witness.
Colossians 3:23-24 says “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.”
When we look at every opportunity we’re given as an opportunity to serve Jesus, then our entire perspective changes. We no longer allow the comments or actions of others to dictate our actions or words, because we’re serving Jesus. We are able to clean up the mess someone else left behind, because we’re serving Jesus. We’re able to go the extra mile on a project, even when no one acknowledges it, because we know Jesus sees.
How will your day change by doing all you do for Jesus? I’m guess you’ll have a smile on your face and satisfaction in your heart because the One you’re serving is taking notice and He is well pleased.
