II Thessalonians 3: 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you; 8 nor did we eat anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, 9 not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
Too often we view our work in a disgruntle way rather than a divine calling. God ordained work to humankind. I am suggesting today that our work should be viewed not as a necessary pain that we must endure for the purpose of making money, but as a way of life in which we find personal expressions to bring God’s glory. How do you view your job or career?
Work is a resource of provision in the Lord’s plan for our lives. Through work we provide for ourselves, family, friends, and our Kingdom purposes. I am learning to see work in some new ways, even when at times I don’t like what I am doing or the people I am working with. The challenge is having the right perspective in understanding work!
Point to ponder – With the right mindset your work can be a resource of personal blessing and bring glory to God. Have a great day at work, and if you are not working I am certain you would like to have the problems associated with work at this point in your life.
