Colossians 3:17-25

MSG 17 Let every detail in your lives - words, actions, whatever - be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. NIV 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. MSG 18 Wives, understand and support your husbands by submitting to them in ways that honor the Master. NIV 18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. MSG 19 Husbands, go all out in love for your wives. Don't take advantage of them. NIV 19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. MSG 20 Children, do what your parents tell you. This delights the Master no end. NIV 20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. MSG 21 Parents, don't come down too hard on your children or you'll crush their spirits. NIV 21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. MSG 22 Servants, do what you're told by your earthly masters. And don't just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. NIV 22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. MSG 23 Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, NIV 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, MSG 24 confident that you'll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you're serving is Christ. NIV 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. MSG 25 The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being Christian doesn't cover up bad work. NIV 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
