Hello dear friends!
Today, the photo word is WORK!
Mercian-Webster Dictionary: WORK
• to perform work or fulfill duties regularly for wages or salary
• to perform or carry through a task requiring sustained effort or continuous repeated operations
• to exert oneself physically or mentally especially in sustained effort for a purpose or under compulsion or necessity
Most people work out of necessity, while others work for the enjoyment. Some work to live and others live to work. It can be a never ending cycle of life. I can say with certainty that I enjoy my job. I find much of it rewarding and fulfilling. Sure there’s things that are challenging but what isn’t? I have been blessed through the jobs I have had in my life. I’ve had a couple of career changes through the years but a common factor has always been to help others in some capacity. I thank God for the opportunities afforded to me and the experiences. I have never made a lot of money and yet God has always provided. I currently work with individuals that are more than coworkers, some are friends, others are like family. We share life stories and share in one another’s joys and sorrows.
Romans 12:11, “Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.”
Colossians 3:23-24, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”
Philippians 2:14-15, “Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
I hope you find joy in whatever you do, whether you work to live or live to work!
