1 Chronicles 4:23
Whatever it is we are doing in life we must also understand we are living to do the King's work. Contextually this verse describes people whose employment was in the service of the king. These were the people who worked his fields and worked his pottery industry.
Employment is a part of life. God intended for us to be productive. The desire to produce has been placed inside of us by the Lord. But we exist for far more than that.
We are here "to do the King's work."
We know what the King's work is by the Word which He left us. We also know what His work is by His Spirit He placed within us.
It is good each day to ask the King what His work is for you on that day.
