For the Lord

Jehoshaphat lived in Jerusalem, and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim and turned them back to the LORD, the God of their ancestors. He appointed judges in the land, in each of the fortified cities of Judah. He told them, “Consider carefully what you do, because you are not judging for mere mortals but for the LORD, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. 2 Chronicles 19:4-6

The appointed judges represented the Lord in the decisions they made. The people would see the wisdom, mercy and justice of their God if they served Him and carried out their jobs accordingly. It was not about them, but about their God. It is similar with each believer. Whether we are actual judges or anything from the lowest to the highest job in the land, we should do our best, doing our work as working for the Lord. Colossians 3:23 tells us whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
