Hard Work: Reward Enough?

Description

Somehow, we’ve been duped into believing that work is a secular activity and, therefore, we shouldn’t expect to feel spiritual about our jobs.

“Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before obscure men.” (Proverbs 22:29)

Work plays a very important role in our lives as believers. It provides the opportunity to put into practice spiritual principles that otherwise would be mere academics.

We can read every passage in the Bible dealing with noted servants and still not really understand the principle of surrendering rights. On the job, however, the opportunity to yield our rights presents itself every day.

The way we do our work day by day provides the best exterior reflection of our commitment to serve the Lord in a real, physical way. It doesn’t matter whether that work is in the home, on an assembly line, or in a corporate office. Our true Christian beliefs will be reflected more clearly there than in any other environment outside of the immediate family relationships.

Somehow, we’ve been duped into believing that work is a secular activity and, therefore, we shouldn’t expect to feel spiritual about our jobs. This attitude destroys our greatest area of outreach and witness. Few Christians, if any, who view their work as a “chore” have much of a witness on or off the job.

What is your attitude toward your job? Do your coworkers and your employer know that you are a Christian by your attitudes and work habits?
