Do You Love Your Job?

Do you love your job? Are you doing what you love? Are you pursuing your passion? If you have answered “yes” to all the three questions, then good for you. You are one of the lucky ones.

The harsh reality of life is that we don’t always get what we want, and we don’t always want what we get. Stories of people stuck in dead-end and un-fulfilling jobs are numerous. They are almost the rule, rather than the exception. But what if “loving your job” was never the point? I mean, yes, it is good to love what you do.

Blog Break (12 Feb 13)

Enrich your mind and spur your heart with these three great reads today:

  1. In THE ABUNDANCE OF GIVING, John MacArthur argues that, while there are many reasons to look forward to going to church every Sunday, the offering is usually not at the top of our lists. Yet, it is the one thing that should be at the top. “If we really understand Scripture—particularly some specific promises from Jesus—the thing you should look forward to the most is the offering. God’s Word clearly teaches that our giving is actually a direct pipeline to His blessings.”
  2. Do you find your work monotonous and boring? GRACE FOR MONOTONOUS WORK is an insightful read, which explores the fact that much of what God does every day is monotonous. Inspired by G.K Chesterton and others, Andre Yee exhorts us to glorify God in repetitive work. “We desperately need new eyes and hearts for the monotonous aspects of our daily work. We need new eyes to see our work in light of God’s mandate to Adam and Eve to “fill the earth and subdue it””
  3. Lastly, in BLACKBOARD PRIESTHOOD, R. C. Sproul Jr. exposes the folly of idolizing education as the ultimate solution to humanity’s problems. “Our problem is not that we are stupid, but that we are seekers of pleasure. Our problem is that we are foolish, and thus foolish enough to believe we can educate ourselves better.”

Have a blessed Tuesday, friends. 🙂
