  • Value Fellow Workers

     The human connection is at the root of all satisfying work.  None of us works in isolation, no matter what work we accomplish.  The people we work with not only affect the quality of our accomplishments; they can greatly enhance our pleasure in the process. 

    I feel strongly about the people I work with and not only value and appreciate them.  I love them.  Just as I can’t stick with my work without becoming passionate, it is extremely important to me to deeply care about the people I work with, no matter what part they play.

  • Keep a balanced lifestyle

     Over the last three weeks I have looked at the importance of seeing our work as a Christian calling, not just a job. If God has a plan for your life then God wants to use the vocation He gives you as a meaningful part of your service and ministry to Jesus Christ. I hope you have thought about your work in new and meaningful ways and have found ways to work for the Lord while you work to provide for your family. I have one last message I want to share. Last, but not least.
