Being a young person in this economic space can be a burden. Most of the qualified graduates tarmacking looking for a “yes” at any of the countless doors they have been knocking on is alarming. On the other hand, some are in spaces whether as interns or on short-term contracts but are still crying out over low pay or no pay at all.
The focus to be “someone” is a burden no one prepares you to carry but they expect you to excel in it. The expectations, demands, and the situations around us may make us spiteful or depressed over what to do next. But for those of us who are working or are in business; who do you work for?
This question posed a challenge, is it a direct answer, a philosophical question, or a biblical question. “The bottom line is we work to cater to our needs and we work for those who offer us something substantial to meet our needs,” with a grin on my face this was my response. But aren’t you a Christian?
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ,” Colossians 3:23-24.
We work for God in all we do, it doesn’t matter whether you are underpaid or overpaid, overworked or underworked, appreciated or not, what matters is the quality of work you are putting out. We will never be satisfied by our employers or salaries but what should empower us is that all our needs will be provided for by our God and not the employer. Don’t focus on your employer to cater to your needs focus on God. It’s a hard pill to swallow and abide by, but Faith does move mountains!
