I’ve had the last two days off, so it feels a little like a Monday. 😉
I really enjoy my job, my co-workers, and the company, its a great college job. But lets be honest- its still work. And just like any job, it really tests my patience some times.
Yes, I can choose joy. (James 1:2)
Yes, I can do everything for the glory of the Lord. (1 Corinthians 10:31)
But it is still work. So we take to it an attitude of trying. Trying to do everything perfect to please the customers, our boss, and our self. This bubble of self worth in doing a good job is blown up in my own head. Yes, its good to do a good job, but I can do an even better job when I’m secure in who I am and what I believe.
When Jesus was teaching, the crowd asked “What can we do to perform the works of God?”
Jesus replied, “This is the work of God: that you believe in the One He has sent.” (John 6:28-29)
This is our work, to believe in Christ.
No matter what I’m doing, I can bring glory to God simply by believing.
And the rest will all work out.
(Except maybe being late, which I’m pretty close to being right now. 😉 )
Happy Friday, friends!
