Working for a living

Many of you know Eric’s story. Eric blogs at “A Pilgrim’s Progress,” and he recently resigned as a vocational pastor. He was employed at a couple of part time jobs for a while, but now he has a new full time job.

Eric writes about his new job in his post “White Collar to Blue Collar.” He is very excited that God has provided a way for him to support his family.

And, Eric is convinced that God can even use him working a “blue collar” job for his glory. Eric writes:

The beauty of all this is that God doesn’t care whether we work a white collar or blue collar job. In fact, this dichotomy is a man-made one. The bible never suggests that one type of job is superior to another. The keys, from a scriptural perspective, are that we are working wherever God has us to the glory of God. This may be in a corporate office, on a dump truck, or at home. Whatever our work, we should do the best we can at it in order to bring God the glory.

Would you join me in praying for Eric on his first day of his new job?
