The Joy of Work

The Joy of Work

Work is a part of life. Paid or unpaid. At home or in an office. In the field or in the baby’s room. Whatever you do it’s important to get the most out of it. Experts say that seven out of ten Americans are dissatisfied with their job and dread going to work. Someone once asked, “How long does it take you to get to work in the morning?” The response: “Usually I get to work about a half-hour after I clock in.” This attitude toward work is unfortunate since over the course of a lifetime most people spend about 40% of their time on the job. It seems crazy to invest so much of your life doing something you don’t enjoy, but many people feel trapped in their job and don’t see any way out. Today we’ll look at how to get the most out of your work as a Christ follower.
