A saint's work

Leviticus 23:25 (Berean Study Bible)


You must not do any ordinary work.


Although this scripture refers to the sabbath, I would like to see it in a different light. Is there a difference between sacred and secular work? In other words if a saint and sinner do the same job, does God see and reward them differently? I believe so. A saint's work, no matter how mundane, is to glorify God and advance His kingdom. When the Bible tells us to "do it all for the glory of God", it means exactly that. A sinner or person of this world works to feed himself and his family, while a saint strives to feed God's people. So, even the most menial work like waiting on tables, like Stephen, is holy and exalted when it is done in Christ and for His glory.
