When my children were younger I tried to impress upon them the need to choose a job they love. Life is too short to work at a career you do not love. In addition, when you love what you do, it never feels like work.
Yes, there will be problems or challenges, even when we love our work. However, when we love our job, the difference is noticeable.
In my younger years, I was employed in a variety of areas, from carrying canoes, stuffing newspapers, loading ice cream trucks, to radio broadcasting.
I have volunteered in a number of areas from painting to loading furniture. As a friend once said, ‘I have learned a lot of things I do not want to do for a living.’
Nothing compares to leading others to Christ. There is no greater opportunity or privilege than sharing a message of hope with others, changing the course of this life and their eternal destination.
When we see our relationship with God as an opportunity to make a difference for others, then we are beginning to know the love of the job.
