5 Ways to Like Your Job More

Are you satisfied in your job? 

Many people lack contentment at their place of work. Other than job satisfactionmajor problems, it’s possible they’re focusing on what the job does not offer rather than the good it gives.

I’ve got 5 tips from Joseph Rhea at the Gospel Coalition to help put the joy back in your job.

Give thanks for the job you have.

Identify things you can be grateful for at work. Keep a list and thank God daily. Look at every challenge, frustrating situation, or negative coworker as an opportunity to learn and honor God. 

Repent of idolizing a different job.

Is another job robbing you of peace? If you feel like the grass is always greener on the other side, then you may end up being faced with a lot of disappointment. Either apply for another job or forget about it and apply your whole heart to the job you have.

Invest in the people and projects at your work.

Choose to sacrificially serve your peers and superiors well. Honor them and be a good listener. Give your best to the duties you’ve been assigned, remembering it’s the Lord Christ whom you ultimately serve.

Saturate yourself with Scripture.

Take time to read and meditate on the Word. Memorize and post verses that remind you of your blessings in Christ.

Remember your identity is in Christ not your job.

You cannot control your circumstances, but you can control the way you react to them.

If you’re a believer, remember (Colossians 3:1-3) you’ve been raised with Christ. Set your heart on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. For you died and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
