“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.”  Proverbs 2:6-7

We work for someone beyond our boss; His name is Jesus!  The reason this is very important is it keeps in perspective how much bigger our career is than simply the job itself. I know this seems to be a surprise for many people, but the job is important, very important; but the king is “most” important.  When we deal with our day this way it helps us accomplish freely what God intends for us as employees.  Vocational health is the overflow of a healthy spiritual walk with Jesus.

Work matters, and I’m not here to dispute that, but working for the king matters more.  If we desire to see our paths made straight, and our daily efforts rewarded vocationally, we much lean on the one who has gifted us, not the gift itself.  We all have gifts and talents, but it’s very important that we lean on His understanding for utilizing them. This perspective will help us discover the bigger purpose in life, Christ.

Respond:

How can this Christ-centered perspective help you at work situation?

At work, are you leaning on your own gifts and talents instead of leaning on God’s wisdom and power?
