Our lives can be such a challenge, and we often struggle to make sense of our suffering. Sometimes we feel a little like Job—as though the bottom has dropped out of our life and everything we thought we could depend on has disappeared from view. The book of Job doesn’t provide us with neat and tidy answers about all the suffering we face, but it points to God as the One we can trust when things seem to be falling apart.
For many, going to work can be a real chore. Dealing with unreasonable employers, co-workers, and customers can make having a job an unpleasant experience. On top of that, we live in a fallen world. In light of that, can a person really have a meaningful work experience, filled with joy and satisfaction? The answer to that is a resounding yes. It simply requires having God’s perspective every time we enter the workplace.
