23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23 – 24)

The survey results are in from our Bible study poll. 70% of our respondents consistently participate in Bible studies, 20% rarely participate and 10% occasionally participate. Thanks for the honest feedback! Let’s all prayerfully consider how we can learn from each other to improve – all for God’s glory.
As we conclude our consideration of the Discipline of Bible Study, let’s focus on an important but sometimes overlooked role that Bible study plays. Most of us will have encountered individuals who are excellent at accomplishing tasks but the way they get things done leaves a lot to be desired. Examples exist in our work environment, in public life and yes, even in the church. We are likely guilty ourselves at times.
God is not only concerned about what gets done but how things get done. His standards for the way we must execute our tasks for Him are very high, and Bible study keeps us in tune with His standards.
Can you share a circumstance where your awareness of God’s standards impacted your attitude in carrying out a challenging task?
