Forget You!

You have blotted out their name for ever and ever… even the memory of them has perished. PSALM 9:5-6
Think for a moment about everything you need to accomplish today. How long is your to-do list? What commitments do you have? What tasks are critical to your work world? Who is depending on you to keep the work moving, to make the deals happen?
Now roll it out for the week. What has to be done? What about for the next two weeks? For the next month?
Overwhelmed yet?
Everything on your list is urgent. It all needs to be done today. This week. This month.
Clearly, God gives us work to do, but work is about more than merely crossing items off a to-do list; it’s about honoring God. We honor God with the quality of our work, as defined by God and not by man, rather than the quantity of our work. We honor God with our skill, with our productivity, with our attitude, and with our creativity. We honor God when we work for Him.
Those who don’t work for God work against Him. And those who work against God won’t leave much of a legacy. They might be remembered for a few days, a few years, perhaps even decades or centuries. But in eternity, their names are “blotted out… for ever and ever” and “the memory of them has perished.”
How will your work be remembered in heaven?
