I Corinthians 10:31(NIV) So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
In what group of people would you find yourself? I hope you are among those passionate and excited by your career. But if you’re not, you can be sure you are clearly not alone. Nevertheless, I think it’s a problem that deserves your careful consideration. Demonstrating God’s image isn’t best reflected in a person whose life is tarnished by frustration and discontent.
If you are unhappy in your career, take a good look to determine the root of your dissatisfaction. Sometimes it’s something we can’t do anything about; but sometimes we make it worse than it is with our sorry attitude. If you are in a leadership role, set a good example for those you lead. I make every effort to do that in the Ministry I lead. How about you?
We are challenged to lead as Christ leads us, with love. Remember as a leader, your duty is not to control people; it is to draw alongside them, and help them grow and flourish. If you are not in a leadership role, be the best employee you can be and serve and submit to your boss as you would the Lord (Colossians 3:23). In the end whether you are a boss or a regular employee, having the right attitude is the heart of the matter. So, look at what you can change especially your attitude, and take steps to make it better! What do you lead?
Prayer: Dear Lord, give us the wisdom, grace and strength to impact our co-workers and the people around us like family, friends, and even our enemies with a positive and Godly attitude. In Jesus name, Amen.
