How do you know when your work is finished? For some, that is a difficult question to answer because they spend their entire lives striving to get things right and make things better for those around them. It is difficult because despite their best efforts they never feel they have done enough. Often such people give all they have until one day they finally accept that they have finished.

There are others who know they are finished because they have done all they plan to do whether they complete their work or not. This attitude reflects a life ethic that limits the amount of work completed to the amount of work pursued. It’s an attitude that says whatever I get done is all that will be done. For these, a job is complete when they have done all they are going to do, regardless to whether or not all that needs to be done is done.

When is a Saint’s work done? When can a believer drop their yard tools, wipe the sweat off their brow and call it a day? When we have done our best and God is glorified. That’s when we will hear a voice that says don’t be weary in well doing. John 9:4 say’s, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work." As Christians, we believe we must work until our day is done. We are not satisfied until we give our best and God is glorified. Today, do the work that God puts in your hand. Don’t be satisfied until it’s done in a way that will please him.
