During a season of constant threats of layoffs, while working for a large corporation, it became harder for me to stay upbeat. The pervasive dread of becoming unemployed permeated the mood of the entire organization.
It can be difficult and challenging to constantly stay motivated and passionate about our work. Recessions, fear of unemployment, long work hours can discourage and derail the passion and vision God has for our lives and careers. How can we re-energize our spirits during these times of discouragement?
Proverbs 11:25 has a solution. “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
If you need some renewed motivation or encouragement today, try encouraging and challenging those around you. They’ll appreciate it, and it’s always more prosperous to give than to receive.
