00494 - 84,365 Hours

The average worker spends 84,365 hours of their lifetime in work (36 hours per week). What could we accomplish for God if we spent the same time working for His Kingdom?

The Bible tells us in Colossians 3:23 (NCV): "In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any earthly master." This verse challenges us to view our work as a form of service to God, how we treat people, and how we bring decisions of integrity and character to those around us. Every interaction we have has the potential of God-breathed influence to everyone.

God doesn’t separate our faith from work they are linked. Our faith is all about exuding Jesus in everything we do. So be as passionate in your workplace for Jesus as you are in Church. Your time is in His hands.


You have one life; use every moment to exude Jesus to others.


Lord, help me to know the best way to use my time for Your Kingdom.

Action Point

If you only gave one hour per week to God during your life, you would contribute 2,343 hours into His Kingdom - do it.
