12 THINGS TO REMEMBER IN 2012 (3)
Work is not a curse. And work is not a burden! In fact, I think work is a pleasure. Today, I want you to not forget this: WORK IS A PLEASURE. I continue this series on 12 Things to Remember in 2012.
The Pleasure of WORKING
Solomon, wise king of ancient Israel wrote: “Nothing is better for a man than … that his soul should enjoy good in his labor…” (Ecclesiastes 2:24)
Dorothy L. Sayers noted: “Work is not a thing one does to live, but the thing one lives to do.” E. W. Kenyon, notable teacher of faith of the early 19th century wrote in his classic, Signposts on the Road to Success: “Choose your work, rather than have the work in which you have no interest thrust upon you. Find out what you can do, what you like best…” And do it!
Take pleasure in your work, and work, generally. Do not disdain work. Like I said earlier, work is not a burden, neither is it a curse. It is a gift of God (See Ecclesiastes 3:12-13). Remember this today, and you will succeed!
Question: What’s your own vocation? Can you share here what you find most enjoyable about your work?
