Here’s the second in the workplace myths series from Threads. Tom Marshall writes:
I do feel sorry for God, because we middle class Christians possess a definite, unofficial tick-list: happy childhood, school, university, marriage partner, house, family, great career. Often, when one or more of these dreams doesn’t materialise in the way we’d hoped, we round on God and complain. As my time at the software firm stretched on without any sign of escape, so my frustration with God grew. I felt that God had led me down a cul-de-sac into the ‘wrong job’ and it didn’t help that many of my friends from school and uni were marching onwards in what I viewed as the ‘right job’.
Where are you at in your job? Dead end? Can’t wait to get to work? Good days and bad days?
And where is God in all that?
