LOVE God, LOVE People

When your job consists of loving God and loving His people the way He loves it really a job or is it life? 

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 ESV

Wherever we are and whatever we do for a living....these two things should be the core of our lives.

So how do we incorporate it into everything we do?  

It's our them for the one who created us.

It's our lives....sacrificing self for the one who died to give us eternal life and hope in this world.

Whether we love our job or hate our we hold these commandments at the core or who we are when we are at work?

If we live these commandments at home in community.....we should also live them at work.

I love my job as Executive Director of Grace Like Rain because at the core of this ministry is these two commandments! Christ is at the center of it all. 

Where this is hard for me:

How to distinguish job from home because my goal is the same at both.
And to remember that work is not is ultimately living a life for Him! 

Anyways, here is my rambling thoughts for do we live these commandments to love the Lord your God and to love your neighbor as yourself in our daily jobs, our daily workplaces?  

If we alter the point of why we work, does it make the work more fulfilling, more joyful?  

I'd love to hear your thoughts so....tell them to me in the comments!
