The hand which brings gifts to God must be washed first.
In every work we do God first of all looks for the reparation of what we have done, what we have broken and what we did that was shameful. Our hands need to be washed by the blood of his Son.
 
If we have been cleansed, he accepts the work as done to his honour alone and he blesses it with divine grace.
But God will not have any part in anything done in our own strength only and without reconciliation through Christ.
 
When things go well at work for the unbeliever, he or she may experience gratefulness. Even the unbeliever’s heart beats gratefully when things go well.
But their hands must be cleansed, or God will not accept and bless what they had done, because it was not done for God, but for self-serving godless reasons.

We read in Lev 23: 12, 13 (The Message) -On the same day that you wave the sheaf of the first grain that you harvest before the Lord, (a sacrifice and prayer of thanksgiving for the harvest), offer a year-old male lamb without defect; it is a Fire-Gift to God, a pleasing fragrance. 
 
May the sweet fragrance of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross define the aroma of everything we do.
Nothing cleanses, except the blood of Christ. Let your reconciliation with God through Christ discern the character of your thanksgiving and praise.
Bless God with worship, because only then will everything you do with your life, all you do at work and everything offered to Christ in his church, be welcomed by God as a token of your love and faith -  and be blessed by his grace.
 
May all your work be blessed, because it comes from a heart that loves the Lord and is accepted by him as honouring his Name.
