We Give It All


"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men."-Colossians 3:23


I was listening to a song the other day. It's called "Give It All" by the band Rise Against. I usually listen to it for my warm-ups in sports. Everytime I listen to it, I get in my head, I'm going to give my all on this match, game, run, or whatever. But I got to thinking the other day, do we really give it OUR all?

Colossians 3:23 states "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men." We may think we are giving it our all. And physically we might be. But are we really giving it our all mentally AND physically? God says we have to give our all to Him, and not other people. Sure, our teammates are important to us. But let's just think here a little bit. God is our BIGGEST teammate we could have ever asked for. He has given us our abilities to be able to do sports, but most importantly, we have recieved the biggest gift of all. We are able to glorify God all the time.

So therefore, it is extremely important for us to give our all everday. Not just in sports. But in everyday life. Respecting our elders. Completing our school work. Or just valuing everyone in their own special ways. I know this devo isn't the longest, but I am just trying to get the main point across.

We, everyone, must honor Christ in EVERYTHING we do, and we must give EVERYTHING we possibly have, whether it be sports, or schoolwork, to Christ. We truly are very blessed to have the opportunity to do something great for Christ.

  1. What is something you can give your all for to God?
  2. Has their ever been a situation in YOUR life that you know you could have given more?
  3. Have you ever given thought, that we must give our all for Christ in everday life?

"Dear Lord, please give us the strength to glorify Your name in everything we do. Amen"
