"Oh, no, it's Monday again!" "Thank God it's Friday!" Do you dread Monday mornings and look forward to weekends? Do you find your work boring or burdensome? So you might ask, "How can work be a blessing when it reminds me of a Nazi concentration camp, and my pay is not commensurate to my ability and input?"
Why is work necessary? Because the earth was cursed after Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the consequence of that sin was the cursing of the ground which man needs to till until he dies. Since the earth is cursed, work and life is not a walk in the park. Nevertheless, work is a blessing, not a curse.
Since the call of duty to our boss and the Lord are one and the same, here are a few practical ways to honor God through our current boss in the workplace 1) If you should come to the boss with a problem, bring a solution too. That's the reason why you were hired (2) Always arrive on time or earlier. (3) Work with integrity (4) Complete the work thoroughly and on time and lastly, Never say, "It ain't my job."
The blessing of blessing others. Work is the means by which God blesses us financially so we can meet our basic needs and fulfill some of our dreams. God blesses us with the means to earn income so we could help others and look after the needs of others than our own. So we must never taken our work for granted. We must love each working day of our job.
