Is Your Work Sacred? [quote]

Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.

― A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

I wanted to share this quote with you because it touched me. As someone who works a “secular” job day to day, I often feel frustration that I am not serving God in my work. This quote helped me realign my perspective and realize that, whatever work I do, my attitude and the person for whom I am doing it are ultimately what matter. Even though I don’t always feel like I am “serving God” during my work day, as Tozer declares so well, I truly am.
