How did we get here?

It’s hard to believe anyone gets fired for no reason. Yet, you may know someone who was fired from a job over something little or over something that was not in their control. One thing that we must understand – regardless of why you get fired – is that we’re talking about sinful people living in a sinful world. You may get fired unjustly. You may get fired when you deserved it. What happens after that moment is what matters. Your legacy is defined not in the easy moments, but in the ones that seem like they’re the hardest to make it through.

“Work fulfills our nature; it is part of who we are, and we can never be fully satisfied without it. At the same time, however, work is not the sum total of who we are.” (breakpoint.org)

“Our jobs are not necessarily the most important aspect of our calling or our service in Christ’s work of redemption.” (tifwe.org)

the root of the English word vocation is the Latin verb voca, which means “to call.” The linguistic evidence shows that at some point in history, people thought of every type of work as a “calling.” Whether you are a minister or a mechanic, you do not work because it pays the bills, or because it’s personally fulfilling, or because it justifies the money you spent on college tuition. You work because it glorifies God. (thegospelcoalition.org)
