Do not labour for food which perishes, but for food that endures to eternal life.
Not all of us have choices about what labour we undertake. Many of us have our choices cut out for us by long years of training and experience.
But insofar as one does have a choice, here’s a principle for work which Jesus offers.
Do not work merely for money or food, which is spent and gone; work for things that will endure in eternity.
What will endure? Goodness will. Good deeds put into God’s invisible and run-proof bank. Helping other gravitate towards the same.
Doing whatever you do because it is the will of God for your life–that will endure.
As I return to writing after 2.5 years spent setting up house, and establishing a small business, I think I am going to use that as a principle for my work.
To write that which might endure to eternal life.
