I'm blessed enough to be a mentor for other combat veterans such as myself who suffer from PTSD, drug & alcohol addiction, anger/rage, etc. We are a Christian based 6month program, so I am able to get attached and fall in love with the guys I get to guide through their recovery. It's an amazing and fulfilling job, where I get the opportunity to praise on a non stop daily basis. It's so rewarding to see the change in these guys as they progress through our program and finally allow God's will to guide them instead of their own. That is the part I focus on with these guys more than anything.

Amen! I work retail and I pray before every shift that I might shine in his glory.

May my workplace be the mission field where I can show Gods love to the world.

DAY 247: Make Your Labor an Act of Love

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.   ~ 1 Corinthians 13: 3

We men are doers. We are action oriented. Sometimes we slip into the role of "roadside assistance" or "handyman" out of obligation rather than seeing each opportunity as a way to show God's love, hands, and feet at work right here on Earth.

It happens. We get busy. We get focused on our own problems and needs.

The euphoria of taking care of someone's need can give anyone a warm, fuzzy feeling. But serving God is about much more than how it makes you feel.  We can clearly see and experience God when our actions are born from the love we carry in our soul. 

What if you viewed your job or work as an act of service for those around you or those you serve? Can you love them? Can you perform each task as if it were a mission project?  Could you introduce someone to God simply by the way you serve or work?
