Learning Contentment
By: Rick Boxx
February 22, 2013

Some studies indicate that as many as 40% of individuals are dissatisfied with their current work situation or career.  While some experts claim the high number is a result of a poor economy or lack of opportunity in the market, others claim unsatisfied employees relates to unrealistic expectations, improper focus, or a lack of gratitude. 

In Philippians 4:12, Paul states “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation.” 

Paul realized that his contentment came as a result of knowing and serving Christ and not as a result of his circumstances.

Ask God to show you the secret of happiness that can not be found in our careers.

Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship—not just of self-interest. Purchase here.
