There are two ways through which Satan will cleverly try to ruin your work and professional life. Either he will lead you to believe that work is only a necessary evil you must put up with… and being negligent and sloppy in your work is not so bad. Or he will lead you to believe that the epitome of your work is found in achieving professional goals that will make you proud to the point of becoming conceited. Both place extreme focus only on self, and neither one of them gives credit to God in the way work is performed or by what is achieved through it. Beware of anyone who talks about being spiritual at work but downplays the importance of diligence and excellence in their work. Also be careful of anyone who promises you success through their techniques, while giving little or no recognition to the Lord of the workplace. Our work will find its greatest meaning and be most rewarding as we… “Do all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31) (PMC) Consider:“He (the Lord) must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).
