What is the difference in being satisfied or finding satisfaction in your work?
Labor Day in the United States of America is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the power of collective action by laborers, who are essential for the workings of society.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate labor to the wisdom of King Solomon’s advice to “find satisfaction” in your labor…
A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God. (Ecclesiastes 3:13)
What’s My Point?
“Note that the verse states not “be satisfied” in their work, but “find satisfaction.”
“There’s a difference in the two. The first is a condition. A feeling, an emotion. Something we cannot control. But the second is a choice.”
In My Opinion
There is nothing worse in life than having to get up in the morning, fight traffic, and go to work at a job you hate…. except…. when you do not have a job and have to worry about how you are going to pay your bills and support your family.
“In other words, make God the center of your life and in this way all of the activities of life will take on a rich meaning and the human heart will be satisfied. Strive to end each day in peace and contentment knowing that we have brought about something of joy, comfort, beauty, or improvement, into the world Yahweh created for us. I believe that in the eyes of our Creator, no endeavor we engage in to accomplish this purpose, will be too big, too small or insignificant a role or task. Take pride and satisfaction in your work by dedicating them to the Lord.”
