Psalm 127:1-2

1. The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?
2. When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.

Ecclesiastes 2:22-25, 3:9-14

22. What does a man get for all the toil and anxious striving with which he labors under the sun?
23. All his days his work is pain and grief; even at night his mind does not rest. This too is meaningless.
24. A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God,
25. for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?

9. What does the worker gain from his toil?
10. I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
11. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
13. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God.
14. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

Colossians 3:17, 23, 24

17. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him

23. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,
24. since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
