Colossians 3:23 Whatever your task, put yourselves into it, as done for the Lord and not for your masters,24 since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ.

When I was in the Navy I coordinated the operation of a nuclear reactor that produced steam to spin a turbine, that turned a propeller, that pushed a submarine, that helped deter aggression, so people could freely assemble and worship God. Some of the things I did seemed very remote from serving Christ: scheduling maintenance, reviewing logs, running drills, …, but when everyone did their small part, great things were accomplished.

I have heard similar strings of tasks applied to long distance truck drivers who haul equipment, that harvests food, so that people can eat and have sustenance to do God’s work.

How does your daily task fit into serving the Kingdom of God?
