Who am I? What is my purpose? How did God design me? How should I best fulfill my calling?
From the very beginning, work has been a gift from God. It’s a key part of how we’re designed. So why does work sometimes feel like something we have to do, and not the fulfilling, God-glorifying act it was meant to be? God calls us to be stewards of our vocation. Everything from the type of job we have to the effort we put into everyday tasks should all point back to him. When we work for His glory instead of our own, we can find deep satisfaction in whatever we do.
Any job can glorify God. Whether you work in a church, factory, school, office, or the great outdoors, all of our work can still be done with Him at the center. To be a vocational steward, you should first discern if your job matches up with the talents God has naturally gifted you with. Then, dedicate the hours you spend working to Him. Vocational Stewardship is also for those who do not have a traditional paid job. Homemakers and retirees can also steward the work they do every day for God.
