Last Saturday, February 9, I showed “Facing the Giants” in English to my interpreter’s class. I have now seen the movie several times and every time I am touched even more by the story.
Well, I discovered that there are some Bible studies on the the DVD along with clips to show. I decided to use some of the studies with the group. This Saturday, the 16th, we looked at what it means to do something “wholehearted.”
The scripture focus is from Colossians 3:23-24. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will received an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
It was an enlightening look for me and a great reminder for me that in whatever God calls me to do I need to do it wholeheartedly. It is not always easy to do things “wholeheartedly.” At times, we tire of some thing and we become apathetic or impatient toward the perceived outcome. Maybe we are “spinning our wheels” in a situation.
Due to these factors we “give up” and don’t give some thing our all.
Two of the questions of the Bible study caused me to stop and think about my own life and situations:
What is the value of giving things your best effort?
Are you wholehearted in your endeavors?
The last question really hit home for me. At times, I think, I tire and don’t give my all in certain situations. I truly believe that the Lord expects me to give my all to every ministry opportunity He gives me.
This Bible study has pointed me to the need to always remember that I need to give my best to whatever circumstance I find myself in…
