“The man [or woman!] who does not work for the love of work but only for money is not likely to make money nor to find much fun in life.”
-Charles M. Schwab
That’s quite some advice from one of the top businessmen in American history! Yet how many of us really take this to heart? I’ve heard so many times from people who say that they are working just for the money and that what they REALLY want to do is something else entirely. This isn’t productive. So our choice is to either find a way to love the work that we are at least temporarily required to do, OR find a way to make money doing what it is that we love to do. Both of these are valid options. Work can be a ministry. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, there are people you can reach, people you can help. And we also know that when you truly love what you are doing, nothing can stop you from doing it!
