Your job is what you are paid to do, your work is what you were born to do.
Your job is your skill, your work is your gift.
You can be fired from your job, you can’t be fired from your work.
You can retire from your job, you can’t retire from your work.
The innate understanding of your divine responsibility is what gives your life a focused bearing. Your work was created by God, but your job was created by men. What would you rather do: put more effort into growing the seed God has planted into you, or waste your time seeking jobs you weren’t born to do.
Don’t quote me wrong, this doesn’t mean you should hate your professional career, it could be what your were born to do (it could be your work), the purpose of this is that you understand who you are really working for, for God or for Men.
What is your work?
