Dirty Jobs Series – Work with a Greater Purpose

I finished up our Dirty Jobs series today challenging our people to consider that there’s more to working then achieving the maximum pay level or best benefit package…that maybe God has something in mind for you at your job. Maybe he has you right where you are, right now, for some greater purpose than you’ve ever imagined. I talked about three areas to consider:
1. Work provides opportunities to live out Biblical standards.
2. Work provides opportunities for you to be generous and advance the kingdom.
3. Work provides opportunities to share your faith with others.

I closed with this quote, “Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at something that doesn’t really matter.” In a hundred years, what you did for a career and how much money you made will be forgotten…no on will care…you’ll be dead and gone. But what will last for eternity is the example and testimony of Jesus Christ that you shared with others while you worked. Are you working with a greater purpose?

How about my nephew, Bryant, on the sax belting out a little Huey Lewis and the News’, “Workin’ for a Livin'” before the message this morning?
