Could this be because they don't feel their job is a "good" one?
Pay is not the most important factor for most people in a "good" job. Research shows that a critical factor in job satisfaction is meaning. The kind of meaning that comes from knowing you are accomplishing something very important, for something...or Someone...much bigger than yourself.
We don’t get meaning from our work, we bring meaning to our work.
God's Pleasure At Work was created for high school students, but it's just as appropriate for adults of all ages and stages in life!
This e-text contains over 50 video clips to make concepts come alive.
Actual comments from high school students:
"[This course] has really helped me with so many things and taught me more than I ever imagined learning in this class. I can't wait to see what else is in store throughout the rest of the year."
"I have learned many things about the nature of work, God's purpose for it, and how a Christian should view it. These lessons will not only serve me well in my future career, but shape how I go about the day-to-day tasks of the present."
"I really love how this book shows us that we should not look at life a sacred and secular, but rather everything that we do can either be for the glory of God or contrary to His will. We should not divide the different sections of our lives into sacred and secular, but think that whatever we do can either be in harmony with God's design or in conflict with it."
"I have learned so many things this semester in Theology of Work, but one of the most important to me is the fact that no matter what profession you choose, you can and should still use it to glorify God. God calls us all to different things. Whether you are a janitor, a business owner, or a pastor, God put you in that job for a reason and His main purpose is for you to glorify Him through your job."
