   Whatever is done should be done heartily (literally “from the soul”) as to the Lord & not to men. In every form of Christian service as well as every step in life, there are many tasks which people find to be obnoxious. Needless to say, we try to avoid such work. But this verse teaches us in this very important lesson, that the humblest servant can be glorified & dignified by doing it for the Lord. In this sense, there is no difference between secular & Christian work. All is sacred. Rewards in heaven will not be for prominence or apparent successes; They will not be for talent or opportunities; but they will be for faithfulness. The obscure person will fair very well in that day if they have carried out their duties faithfully as to the Lord. Two motto's that are hung over the kitchen sink are: “Not somehow, but triumphantly,” & “Divine service held here three times a day.”

 

   The Lord is keeping record at the present time, & every thing done as to Him will command His attention. “The kindness of God will repay the kindness of men.” Those who have little of earthly inheritance “will receive the reward of the inheritance in heaven. Let us remember this the next time we are called upon to do something that we do not like to do, whether in the church, in the home, or at work: it is a testimony for Christ to do it uncomplaining, & do the best job possible.

   Paul does not specify just who he has in mind in (V:25). Perhaps we would just naturally think of an unjust master, one who oppresses his servants. Maybe a Christian servant who has become weary of obeying his unjust demands. “Never mind,” Paul is saying, “the Lord knows all about it, & He will take care of the wrongs, too.

   But even though that might include masters, it is addressed primarily to servants. Slipshod service, cheating, loafing, or other forms of insincerity will not go unnoticed. There is no partiality with God. He is the Master of all, & distinctions that prevail among men mean nothing to Him. If salves rob their masters (as Onesimus apparently did), They will have to give an account to the Lord.
