Hate Your Job? Here’s 4 Biblical Solutions

Unfortunately, most people don’t love their jobs. We tend to live for the weekends and just try to get by Monday – Friday. It makes me so sad to know that most of our country dreads getting out of bed Monday mornings because God gave us work as a blessing.

The biggest career lesson I could offer anyone seeking job satisfaction is to seek God first. As Proverbs tells us, “Trust in Him with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths.” With Christ as your guide, you can avoid dead-end jobs, wasted time, and stressful work environments. Thank Him for the talents and abilities He has given you and magnify Him through your work.

If you do feel stuck in a frustrating or negative job, consider the 4 career lessons from New England Patriots coach, Bill Belichick:

  1. You career must be motivated by love

If you do what you love it will never feel like work.

  1. Hard work and self-awareness can overcome talent deficits

Be dependable, consistent, coachable and aware of your need to for improvement.

  1. Fight with courage for your crazy-great ideas

If you believe you’ve got a winning idea, don’t be afraid to use it.

  1. Put your energy into building real relationships…not social media

Everyone teaches you something if you are willing to listen … often your peers and subordinates are the more important relationships, not those at the top.
