As a Christian, work in the secular world can seem meaningless. If God’s work is our highest calling, then what are we doing sitting in a cubicle, or scrubbing toilets, or selling clothes?
But the Bible makes it clear that our JOB need not be holy in order for our LIVES to be holy. I doubt Jesus ever moaned, “Oh, why am I a carpenter!? I had hoped my life would mean more than this!” The apostle Paul argued that his tent making allowed him to financially support his ministry himself, adding credibility to his work for the gospel.
If you are bemoaning whatever area you work in right now, maybe it is time to switch perspective. Maybe your “unholy” job is God’s way of providing you with resources for His work… money to give away, connections, people in need of God’s grace. Sometimes God calls us to quit our jobs in a full time pursuit of Him. And sometimes our jobs are PART of a full time pursuit of Him. We just need to incorporate them properly as the resource they are towards our work to glorify our sweet Creator.
