On Work 2

"God has declared you righteous (those who believe) and that by the blood of Jesus, therefore your work should be an outward expression of your faith and belief in the Lord Jesus and as a genuine witness of your love toward others.

Learn to discipline yourself to do the jobs that you dislike the most with the same zeal you do toward the jobs you like most. Any day where you feel your very best is a good day to start this discipline. Affirm within yourself a reason for this or that discipline. This repeat this effort until you find joy in doing things that you dislike doing. Continue adding things until everything that you do you take on with the same zeal and effort because you have found for yourself the benefits and blessing that come with a disciplined mind.

You are not your work. You are not your job title. You are a child of God purposed and blessed with certain talents, skills, temperament to be used for the purpose of fulfilling your calling and providing for others a good and clean path to follow. When I rake the leaves, I rake as if it mattered."
