Some people believe the only way they can live for God is by becoming ministers or missionaries. Brother, it is not office, it is earnestness; it is not position, it is grace which enables us to glorify God. God is glorified in the grocery aisle where the godly worker, as he stocks shelves, sings of the Savior’s love! The name of Jesus is glorified by the landscaper as he pushes his mower and praises God for his health, and speaks of the Gospel to his coworker as they labor.
God is glorified by our serving Him in any and all our occupations. Do not think too little of your calling. Every trade may be sanctified by the gospel to noble ends. Turn to the Bible and you will find the most menial forms of labor connected with daring deeds of faith and persons in low places whose lives are the very illustrations of holiness.
Whatever God has made your position, or your work, abide in that, unless you are quite sure He calls you to something else. Let your first care be to glorify God to the utmost of your ability wherever you are. Fill your occupational sphere with His praise, and if He needs you in another, He will call you there too.
