Ecclesiastes 3:13 nlt


It is easy to understand that the things we enjoy  
like food and drink are gifts from God.   
Maybe not so easy to understand is that our work is a gift, too.   
Work is not just a drudgery of chores and assignments.  
Whatever you labor at has purpose and is part of God’s plan.
All we have is a gift from God.

Have you thought about your work as a gift from God, part of His purpose and plan?
How would seeing work as one of His gifts change your attitude about it?

Blessings this day of grace,

  1. Nothing that I have is mine. Everything that I have is a gift. The work that I get paid for by an employer is a gift from God and I truly believe on that. There is a reason why I am in my current employment is to do the work of God. So help me God.

    • I agree with you. Where we work is in God’s plan. Work became so much better when I learned (and practice) that whoever I work for I am really working for the Lord.
