Working Hard, or Hardly Working?

I wrote recently about life after graduation, and some of the difficulties it presents. This week, I found a great blog titled ‘Idle of the Heart.‘ In this article he encourages people, specifically young men, to get up and work hard at whatever job they can get at the time. The blog goes through three biblical reasons about work:

  1. You are called to work (1 Thessalonians 4:10-12).
  2. You are called to work now (Ecclesiastes 3:22).
  3. You are called to work for Jesus (Colossians 3:23-24).

Again, I recommend reading Kevin DeYoung’s book ‘Just Do Something.’ It’s not enough to sit around and wait until your dream job lands in your lap. Get up, go work hard and continue to pursue your dream job while you’re involved in a local church and getting to know and be open and real with people in the church. God will continue to lead and guide you even in a job you don’t like very much.
