The story is told of a woman who cleaned the same office building for many years. When asked how she endured the drudgery of doing the same chores day in and day out, she replied, â€œItâ€™s not drudgery. Iâ€™m working for the King and Heâ€™s pleased, (along with others) when I do my best.â€ This woman found the secret to meaningful work.
How about you? When was the last time you found joy in your work? The Bible gives us a key, â€œWhatever you do, do all for the glory of God.â€ When we work for the Lord and to serve other people, any honorable work has meaning.
It all depends on your attitude. Are you anticipating another day of drudgery? If so, thatâ€™s probably what youâ€™ll get. But if youâ€™re planning to live this day to please God and to serve your fellow man, you may be surprised at how the drudgery is replaced by joy and meaning.
