Reward in full

Work - exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something; labor or toil.
Work is blessing from God. Period. 

My parents for years have been trying to get my brother and me to take pride in our work. And now I think I do, I have noticed in myself a love for a well done job that wasn’t there six months ago. Such as, I have gotten myself in the habit of putting away food and not leaving it out all the time on the counters and table, every day almost I wash the dishes that might be waiting on the counter with out even thinking about it. 
God has given us the great reward of the feeling of a job well done. To know feel and love this is a truly great thing, to know that I took stress of my mom’s mind(she is sick a lot) or took something off my dad’s plate (he has to work a lot) gives me the greatest feeling in the world.
Doing the things that need to be done without being told gives me a indescribable joy that come straight from God.

Colossians 3:23

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

Working for a profit

Unlike some young people I am not afraid to work for my  money, I see spiritual and physical values I get of working. Finishing a job, knowing I did my best, and getting paid Is a wonderful feeling to me.

 I’ve never had actual  job where I go work for someone  daily or weekly (mainly because I’m only 14) but am looking in to one for the summer, and am looking ford to the experience. 
So here’s a little tip the teenagers reading this:

Don’t think of a job as something you have to do because your told, or your parents are making you buy your own iPad, think of it as something that will bring joy to your life or the life of someone else, Prepare you for you future and honor the Lord. 

Work is a gift from God, and yes there will always be days when even the most dedicated worker doesn't want to do what needs to be done but keep pushing to do your best and love the Lord and his gifts.

Good for you! I wish my 16 year old would learn what you have. I bet your parents are so proud of you.
