As the old adage goes, it’s hard to find good help these days. I believe people have been saying that since the earth cooled. That makes me wonder how good the help was years ago.
Peter advocated to us this morning that we ought to serve as good stewards of God’s gifts to us. Had has indeed given to each of us everything we need to serve His purposes in this world. For every purpose He has planned for you, He has equipped you to carry it out. So as we go forth today to serve Him, remember that God has called you to a particular purpose.
How do I know what purpose that is? Like others, sometimes I wonder if what I’m doing is what God wants me to do. That’s a hard question to answer. Even if your job is not directly Christian, can you do Christian things while doing your job? Are there other people to interact with? Are there opportunities to share the gospel? Do others benefit from your presence? Can God be glorified in what you do? I believe the most basic of God’s purposes are fulfilled when you can at least be Christ to others, no matter what kind of job you do.
I welcome your comments below on this. How have you made Christ the center of your work and mission where you labor?
Heavenly Father, help me to see opportunities today where I might serve You and bless others in the capacity of my work. Hp me to be Jesus for others, that they might see You in me today. Amen.
