My editor would tell you that her job is enjoyable. The talents she uses in editing were gifted to her by God, something He put inside her from the time she was little, and He revealed it to her at the proper time.
My wife would say something remarkably similar. God put within her the gifts and talents she possesses in Interior Design to fit her for the business success she has long enjoyed.
I too love my job. I was “fitted” by God to be an explainer. I would not trade it for any other.
The truth is all of us are prepared by God for a specific work. He has given us an embedded natural ability that we can apply to a task we will love. When we accomplish the tasks, we were created to do, we experience a deep sense of personal satisfaction, even contentment.
From the beginning, God created mankind to enjoy His presence, raise children, maintain a home and garden, and work for a living. That was the mandate.
That direction has never changed.
God gave work to us as a gift, full of incredible benefits.
This lesson outlines those benefits and puts work into its proper perspective.
Many people struggle in their work environment and feel frustrated in it. Work is not an enemy to be avoided, but an opportunity to be embraced.
Join me in learning the biblical keys to how God may be glorified in our workplaces, and how we can find peace and fulfillment in the process.
