“In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use”.
2 Timothy 2:20* NIV
When we compare our jobs, with others who engage closely with Missions of Mercy, our contributions may seem meaningless and insignificant. There’s always that feeling of not doing as good as others when it comes to Charity
However, every job can be just as meaningful, if not more so, depending on how we look at it. Many people earn their living with the intention of sparing a certain portion to help feed the hungry or shelter the homeless. Imagine a person working as a street cleaner with the intention of making the world a more beautiful place so that people will love the earth and enjoy it. Anything we do in life can be significant and spiritual if we create an intention to do so.
God uses all kinds of people. He uses shy and outgoing people. He uses people from all different races, ages, stages of life, and backgrounds. God will use plain as well as ornate vessels. He’ll use big vessels and small vessels. But there is one thing that God will not use: He will not use a dirty vessel. You have to be clean on the inside.
When we go out into the world, we take God with us. Our obedience doesn’t stay at home. Our allegiance to God follows us to the workplace, to the gym, and to the supermarket, and demands that we treat others how we would like to be treated. Our partnership with God accompanies us everywhere we go and in everything we do. In every situation, we can share His light and bring glory to His kingdom.
