Routine Work

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 5, 2011

“He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment.” Proverbs 12:11

Routine work may not be sexy, but it is necessary. It is necessary to meet our needs and the needs of those who depend on us. The same work—day in and day out—can seem simple and even boring, but it is a test of our faithfulness. Will I continue to faithfully carry out uncomplicated responsibilities, even when my attention span dwindles? If so, this is God’s path to blessing, “Steady plodding brings prosperity…”(Proverbs 21:5, LB).

The contrast to routine work is chasing after phantom deals that are figments of our imagination. Be careful not to be led astray by fantasies that lead nowhere. It is false faith to think a gimmick, or some conniving circumstance can replace hard work. Wisdom stops chasing after the next scheme and sticks instead to the certainty of available work. What does your spouse say is the smart thing to do? Give them all the facts and then listen.

“They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no head; it will produce no flour” (Hosea 8:7a).

Furthermore, your work may be executed with less effort when everything is going well—when there is no evidence of a pending job loss, or an increase in responsibilities with less pay. However, it is during stressful times that Christ’s followers can step up and set the example. Your attitude of hope and hard work, are a testimony of your trust in the Lord.

So, stay engaged in completing your tasks with excellence, and you will inspire others to engage in their labor of love. See routine work as your worship of the Lord. He is blessing your faithfulness to follow through with the smallest of details. Routine work with the right attitude reaps a rich reward.

So, are you content to serve Christ in your current career?

The Bible says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23-24).

Is my routine work a compelling testimony to the excellence of God’s gracious work?
