What is it to live wholehearted?

These words seem an invitation to reflect on one's inner attitude and "heart" place in all of one's life and relationships - home, work, family, play. Are you really in these relationships and tasks from a place of loving regard, or do you hold some resentment or grudgingly show up.  Perhaps you might take into your prayer what you can offer yourself to that is "unto the Lord."

What is it that God has invited you into, rather than what you think you "should" be doing?  Do you have an attitude of slavery or loving service and partnership with God? Wholehearted may mean saying "yes" to what the Lord invites, and learning to say "no" to something else.

And, when there is work that you "have" to do rather than what you "want" to do, consider cultivating an attitude of gratitude as "unto the Lord." All of life is here to be lived in the Presence of God now.

Colossians 3:23-25

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Since you know you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favoritism.
