Even Mundane Work Can Be An Offering To God

May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17 (NIV)

"Every job has some parts to it that you won't like, but you can still worship God through those parts of the job."

God establishes the work of our hands by giving us gifts that will make a difference in the lives of others. That's what success is-being what God meant for you to be. Jesus said, "My purpose is to give [you] a rich and satisfying life." (John 10:10 NLT)

You may be thinking, Well, Rick, what about work that needs to be done but doesn't express my gifts; it just has to be done?

Any homemaker knows exactly what I'm talking about. I would say to you that every job, even the one you are suited for, has mundane parts. Every job has some parts to it that you won't like, but you can still worship God through those parts of the job.

And I would suggest you adopt this attitude: "Maybe this job that I'm in right now is a phase of my life and I'm not going to be here the rest of my life. But this is where I am for now; therefore, I will worship God right now."

The apostle Paul says, "Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering." (Romans 12:1 MSG)

"Lord our God, may your blessings be with us. Give us success in all we do!" (Psalm 90:17 TEV).
