Work is hard, and we don’t always enjoy what we do, but we do it out of the necessities of living and supporting ourselves and our families. I heard a quote once that said “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”  While this makes perfect sense, it is important to recognize that God gave us work and no matter how much you may love your job, it can be hard and frustrating at times. Once we realize it is ok to celebrate and enjoy the outcomes of work, we can learn to love and appreciate it especially during those moments of frustration. Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 6:18, Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun for the few days of life God has given him – for this is his lot. It is our God given right and command to work, but he also allows us to take satisfaction in it.
