Working in Vein

Did you hear about the blood transfusionist who quit his job? He felt all his work was being done in vein.

Maybe you’ve felt that way at times. If so, it may be because you haven’t sought the Lord for how you can do your job in a way that brings glory to Him. Most of us spend a great deal of our time in the workplace. A key part of redeeming that time is to ask, “How can I do this job in a way a non-Christian would not.”

Could you give a Christian greeting or a God bless you to customers who enter your store? Could you put Gospel tracts or posters in your work area? Could you ask God for divine appointments to share the Gospel with co-workers, customers or vendors? Could you give a smile and show a good attitude under pressure when others are cursing and blaspheming God over their “unfair treatment.”

Serving God is never working in vain. Its redeeming the time.
