There's no such thing as a dishonorable profession. One great carpenter is
worth a dozen paper shufflers in an office somewhere. MBAs area dime a
dozen, but a truly great auto mechanic is a treasure.
Say, what are you doing with your life?
I was once told by a discouraged employee: "I've wasted my whole life
playing around at jobs and now it's too late to start a career."
First, it's never too late to start doing what you really want to do.
Second, don't let a job define who you really are.
A career today is different from a career yesterday. Today's career may be
someone working three jobs to provide for the family and to support what
they really love--doing mission work during the summer months.
So, what are you doing with your life? If every moment is spent "working the
routine" then your job is defining who you are.
If you're a Christian, the most important thing that your remembered for
when you leave this planet is not going to be how many deals you closed,
numbers you crunched, or projects you lead.
The number one thing is, was he a faithful Christian? At work, did he
exhibit the qualities of Jesus and did he seek to do good and serve his
fellow man? In so doing, how many folks did he try to bring to the Lord?
You see, there's no dishonorable profession if at the heart of every
professional is, "how will I glorify God today?"
The Bible says, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him" (Col. 3:17).
I hope you have a great day!
