Entry 23 Praying to be Thankful in a Thankless Job
We often do things on a regular basis that goes unnoticed and unappreciated. The greatest jobs that exist are those that serve others. If we want to be great in the kingdom of heaven, we must seek to serve much on the earth. But those social and civil service jobs are often frown upon, and workers sometimes receive less pay for doing them. The benefits are generally very good, however. So is it in the spiritual realm. When we are servants of Jesus Christ, we are often devalued and overlooked. But the eternal benefits are monumental. Not only will we receive stars on our crowns in heaven, we get to live in God’s favor and blessings here on earth. That thankless job may be a blessing in disguise. It can provides a source of income, it can helps us clarify and articulate our goals, it can afford us the opportunity to access and utilize our skills and talents, it can provide networking opportunities, and it can sparkle a change in our lives causing us to reevaluating our paths and do some introspection. Jesus healed 10 men at one time and only one came back to say thank you. Praying to be thankful in a thankless job is choosing to see God‘s goodness in every situation. That’s why we need to be thankful in all things, for God causes them all to work out for our good.
