Re-reading my previous post, “The Night Hardly Anyone Came to the Art Studio,” got me thinking about how God moves in our everyday places of work. Our pastor, Trevor Estes, defines work in the following way:
Your job description is neither an “area” nor what you “do” (such as office work, or counseling, or health care, or facilities maintenance, or art ministry).
Your job description, being a follower of Christ, is to love people.
Of course, you carry this out within a particular setting in your particular area of gifting, but maintaining that little area is not your real job description.
It’s to love people as Jesus loves.
Do you have this perspective? How does this mindset change your experience on the job?
