Genesis 39:1-6 tells us that “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man… And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand… the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake.”
THE WIMP WORKS BY THE CLOCK. He can’t wait for break time and closing time. The real man goes the second mile. He arrives early for work and is willing to work past closing time.
If a job needs to be finished, he does it with a happy and willing spirit. He knows that He is really serving the Lord who is watching and will reward him in due season if he faints not. Wow, guys—what a testimony this would be for Christ if all believers work this way.
THE WIMP DOES NOT PUT HIS HEART INTO HIS WORK for he does not have a heart to work in the first place.
The real man gives 100 percent. When you put your heart into your work it means you put your very best effort into it. This attitude should apply to all that we do. It does not matter what we are doing, whether we like the job or not, we should be the fastest worker and the best, if for no other reason than the Lord is watching!
“And the Lord was with Joseph and he was a successful man” speaks volumes to me. A wrong attitude toward your employer or toward what has been given you to do can hinder the Lord from being with you and making you successful. It can hinder your prosperity and your employer’s prosperity.
Put your whole heart into whatever you do.
