Why do we work? Basically, we need income, therefore, we work jobs.
Too often we find our identity in our work, and success on the job can become our focus in life. The next sale, the next promotion, the next raise, the next title are all worthy pursuits, but we must remember James 4:10, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you” (ESV).
When looking for a new job, remember your true purpose. As believers, we seek first God’s Kingdom and God’s righteousness, knowing that He is the one who provides for our every need. I would encourage you to pursue the next opportunity knowing that God is leading you to the next place where you will serve humbly, where you will share the Gospel.
