A wise man once said, “The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.” The way you approach your work matters. Your Christian beliefs and the principles that flow from them enable you to do your best work that glorifies God. Insisting that beliefs do not matter in the workplace is false or misleading. When it is well understood that doing your best work requires belief and conviction in your work. You must believe in the importance of your work in order to put in the effort.
Psalm 24:3-4 (ESV) says, “Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.” You see from this verse that it is not enough to have a pure heart. You should also ensure your hands are clean. Clean hands symbolizes doing the right things. A pure heart symbolizes having the right motive for what you do. You can do the right thing with an evil motive. And you can also do the wrong thing, but with a godly motive.
It is important how you approach your work. It has to be with clean hands, and a pure heart. The ideas and mission God has placed in your heart must be carried out with careful consideration. Without any form of falsehood. Every unrighteousness is a sin. Christians achieve their goals despite having to fight off the wolves and vultures that seek to prey upon them. God demands from us discipline and integrity at all times. You cannot steer your world towards a more righteous future if your Christian faith is compromised. This is the reason you must make every effort to develop a strong Christian heart that can take on the world. And conquer the world for God.
