Work is a Crucible
You are supposed to like your job, but many don’t. We need to focus on getting the most out of our job in every way we can! However, spiritually speaking, work is a crucible. Even if you love your job work is a crucible on your beliefs for 99% of Christians out there. Why? Because most of us separate our faith from work. That is why when we try to integrate, it is much more difficult than it seems. Here is the good news – nothing worth having comes without struggle. “It is who we decide to become out of that struggle that matters.” What are your biggest fears in living your faith in the workplace? How can we help? Take the Marketplace Mission Trip to find out more too!
Use Spiritual Lenses
Perspective can give us a lot of knowledge we didn’t have previously. It helps us understand one another, and think outside the box. One of the most useful tools in a Christian’s arsenal would be our spiritual lens. Chuck talks about the best way to get involved in your workplace tomorrow and we start by putting on our spiritual glasses. Find out where God is working at your job already. Use that knowledge to then get involved and see something blossom from that experience. You don’t need to have a “mountain-top” experience to know or see God act in your life! Let us know what you see next time at work in the comments.
