Col 3:23-24 – "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." (NIV)
A seventeenth-century craftsman worked alone with primitive tools, but his focus everyday was to put the best he had into his work. This man made violins. He created his own personal standard of excellence and signed his name on each instrument that passed the test.
Today, some three hundred years later, the creations of craftsman Antonio Stradivary are still the benchmark for the best there is in musical instruments. His Stradivarius violins sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In today’s world, superior effort and service are still highly valued. Whatever you do today, autograph it with excellence. God will help you do this, if you’ll just let Him.
