Practical Christianity – Finding God’s Will In Our Work
Have you ever been in a job you wish you had never taken? Have you felt that your faith was being compromised at every turn and that you were falling away from God just by remaining in that place? If so, you might need to go searching.
I know that I certainly have. I was once told by my boss to,
“Go tell Clay to get his @#$$%, *&^%, #^&*) in my office right ?*&^%$ now!”
So I stuck my head out of the office and said,
“Hey Clay, the boss needs to see you.”
He commenced to tell me that I had not followed his instructions and that I needed to call for Clay the same way he had just told me. I very politely told him,
“Sir, I don’t talk like that anymore.”
He began to stutter and stumble over his words and said something to the effect that he didn’t either and that ……. It would have been funny if it hadn’t been so sad. From that moment on, I was persona non-grata. I needed to find another job and it was tough but I was persistent and found one.
Have you ever been in that kind of situation? What did you do? Let me hear from you.
Tomorrow we will talk about looking for work. I recently had an experience that blew me away and forced me to walk from an opportunity that otherwise I would have taken.
