>Retire? Why?


In the mall yesterday a guy asked me, when I told him I had just moved to the area, if I came here to retire!


Why would he think I was old enough to retire? (refrain from comments, please)

But it reminded me that I’ve no desire to “retire.” This is not a statement that retirement is sin…but why would I want to quit doing what I love doing?

It saddens me that so many followers of Christ hate their jobs/careers. Not once-in-a-while, not just-on-Mondays; but always they dislike intensely their jobs.

Malcomb Forbes got it right when he said, “The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.”

If you are a student, seek His face, His path, and recognize that He has gifted you and called you to a career…find it!

If you are an adult working at a job you hate…find what you are good at, what you are gifted for, and do it…
