Blessed on the job
Vocation. It's your day-to-day, your job, your life's work. The word comes from the Latin word vocare, which means 'spiritual calling.' Every vocation, regardless of what it is, is a calling from God. The work of God is for all the people of God, no matter where you work. Even if your job makes you feel stuck or closed-off, with God there's always more of a way forward than you think there is. And once you start to see your job in that light, you'll find it easier to believe God wants to bless you on the job. How do you find that way forward? First up: pursue work compatible with your gifts. 'If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised' (1 Peter 4:11 NIV). Then, learn everything possible about your job. 'Let the wise listen and add to their learning' (Proverbs 1:5 NIV). And always keep God as your true employer. 'Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does' (Ephesians 6:7-8 NIV). Then you'll see work as God's gift, not punishment. 'When God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work - this is a gift of God' (Ecclesiastes 5:19 NIV). Do more than what's expected. 'If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles' (Matthew 5:41 NIV). See the Lord as your work colleague. Stay Christ-conscious throughout the day as you work through your to-do list, and 'the Lord shall command blessing on you...and in all to which you set your hand.'
