My job stinks! I think I’ll quit. STOP! Don’t let your job get you down. God made us to work. So how then are we supposed to deal with it when it gets to us?
Let’s be honest, work can sometimes stink. No matter what your job is, be it a stay at home parent, a truck driver, or a gas station attendant, there are days when you just don’t want to do your job, let alone be an adult. So what do you do? Do you look for another job, quit the job you have, or do you turn that work that just stinks, into an opportunity to show and tell others about God and Jesus?
The majority of people are going to look for another job, and or quit their current job when things get too stinky. They give up and don’t see the potential that their job has to bring others closer to God. Look at your job as if it were a rocket ship aimed towards God. He made us to work and no matter what our work is, we need to keep our work/rocket ship aimed at Him. And when the bologna of work, the daily grind and trouble get to us, making it hard to deal with and bear, that’s when we take that bologna and turn it into rocket fuel. Take the opportunity to work in a way that God and Jesus would be proud of. Pray for that coworker that has done something to wrong you. Or invite someone to church. It doesn’t matter what kind of rocket fuel you get at your job, what matters is that you use that fuel to point your life and other’s lives towards God.
Yeah, work can stink, but God wants us to turn those stinky days into opportunities to bring not only ourselves but others, closer to Him. Aim your rocket ship towards God and see where he can take you, no matter what your ship looks like or runs on.
