There is nothing better for man than to eat, drink, and enjoy his work. I have seen that even this is from God’s hand, because who can eat and who can enjoy life apart from Him? For to the man who is pleasing in His sight, He gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy, but to the sinner He gives the task of gathering and accumulating in order to give to the one who is pleasing in God’s sight. This too is futile and a pursuit of the wind. (Ecclesiastes 2:24-26)
When do you get most frustrated with the futility of life? When do you struggle to enjoy your work? What do you consider as your work?
Today’s Challenge: Widen your view of your work. With everything you do today, no matter how big or small, consider it to be a significant part of your work. How can you do it well, pleasing in God’s sight? Consider your actions, reactions, and attitudes.
