12:11 Whatsoever ye do, do it with your might. In every business diligently and fervently serving the Lord - Doing all to God, not to man.
Ro 12:11 Not slothful in business. "In diligence, not slothful" (Revised Version). The idea is, "Give all diligence". Fervent in spirit. Zealous, enthusiastic, not indifferent. Serving the Lord. Whatever we find to do is to be done with our might, but above all, the service of Christ.

God is telling us that there two actors in getting to your destiny in life: God and You. God has his own part to play and you have your own. Don 't shift your own roles or responsibilities to God in the name of service for one should not affect the other. Be a balanced Christian.
