Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for? – Matthew 16:24-26
Lord, we’re not interested in a better version of ourselves and easy street. We count the costs of following You and only want what You want for our lives. Use the challenges and opportunities of the workplace to teach us about Yourself and how You’ve uniquely created us to work together. The ultimate ROI in life is the satisfaction and fulfillment of living for and through You. Amen.
