Find work meaningful and enjoyable? Is there purpose in your daily work? The more we find joy in our work the more motivation we will possess.
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing. It’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.
The Presidency is an all-day and nearly an all-night job. Just between you and me and gatepost, I like it.
—Harry S. Truman
I took violin lessons from age six to fourteen, but had no luck with my teachers, for whom music did not transcend mechanical practicing.I really began to learn only after I had fallen in love with Mozart’s sonatas. The attempt to reproduce their singular grace compelled me to improve my technique. I believe, on the whole, that love is a better teacher than sense of duty.
God equips us for work and created us for work–it is a gift to work.
Psalm 90:17 “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.”
Pray-— that you have “everything” to do–and become supremely satisfied this evening, to reach towards perfection in each task, enjoying the long days, fall in love with your purpose set out for you. Pray for God’s favor resting upon you in all your endeavors….hands, heart, head. May your light shine for all to see. AMEN.
