Limitless Worth and Employment   Leave a comment

An article by Lindsey Biggs from the Christian Science Monitor.

Where does our worth come from? A particular job? How much praise we get from a job well done? Many of us have had to wrestle with such questions.

Lindsey writes:

There was a point when I desired additional employment. I felt there were greater ways that my skill set could be used than in what my role at the time offered.

I regularly turn to prayer when I need help or guidance. Prayer gives me a clearer sense of my (and everyone’s) relation to God. I’ve found that getting a clearer view of what God sees and knows helps me experience more harmony.

In this instance, my prayers led me to write a “spiritual resume” – not to share with prospective employers, but to help me think more deeply about where our true worth lies. What I mean by this is I compiled a list of spiritual qualities I felt I expressed, such as patience, creativity, compassion, timeliness, order, self-discipline, etc.
