Psalm 149:4 KJV For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Colossians 3:23 KJV And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
As Christians, it is no longer us who live, for us to live is Christ. Because of this, it is expedient to do everything we do as unto God, including ‘secular’ work. God takes pleasure in us and everything concerning us. Let us therefore see and do everything as a way to glorify Him.
