My “Work” as a Christian
About six years ago I made some notes to myself regarding my work, and the impact of my Christian faith on my daily work activities. It helps me to look back and remind myself that what I believe really does make a difference (at least I believe so). Here are a few thoughts from 2004:
- My daily work is an opportunity to reflect God’s grace. By showing love, respect, and kindness to others, I demonstrate that His grace has impacted my life. Question: Do I treat everyone the same, regardless of status or position?
- I must recognize every task as an opportunity God has provided specifically for me. Question: Am I focused on doing my very best, or am I pursuing money as the end goal?
- I am called to serve God with boldness and without fear. Don’t waste time worrying about my “calling” in life. Question: Do I fear failure, or relish new challenges?
- I should aggressively pursue my passions and interests, knowing God gave them to me. Question: Do I have confidence and faith in my God-given abilities?
