When you look around at the earth, what
do you think about what you see? Do you see all the wonderful
works of God? Are you thankful that He loved you enough to give
you the earth with all the beautiful trees, plants, animals,
flowers, water, and the sky? He says you should help take care
of it! He also says to do your work with a happy heart. You can
ask God to help you with right thinking when you have work to
God knows that sometimes we don't want
to work. We can become lazy and disagreeable when asked to do
physical work. If this happens to us very often, we need to be
ready for an attitude adjustment from God. Work is good for us.
The attitude we have about the work we need to do is important
to our well being. God tells us to work with joy in our hearts.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men..." Colossians 3:23
Gramma's Critters are busy cleaning the
forest. They remember how beautiful the forest is when it is
taken care of. Liam Leapfrog has encouraged everyone to work
hard with joy in their hearts. They will be happy when they look
back on what they have done. God gave them strength and helped
them with right thinking.
God made the earth. He created us to live
on the earth and take care of it. It is better for us if we thank
God for our blessings when we are working. Working with an attitude
of gratitude will help us enjoy the task ahead and complete it
more quickly. We can dedicate or work to the Lord! We should praise Him that we are able to do the work and
enjoy the benefits of our labor!
