Glorifying God at work — no matter the job

WASHINGTON (BP) — The first question of the 350-year-old Westminster Shorter Catechism asks: “What is the chief end of man?” The answer: “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” And many of you may be saying, “Yes, the weekend is almost here and I can start glorifying God and enjoying Him.” But, there’s also that word “forever.” Many think it means “into eternity.” It does mean that, but it also means “at all times,” including Monday through Friday.

While the Westminster Catechism is a document written by humans, it captures many important biblical themes. The answer to this first question is a good example. The Bible tells us: “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31) and “Rejoice in the Lord always” (Philippians 4:4).

Yet, many of us can’t quite wrap this counsel around our jobs. We just don’t see how our jobs can possibly be part of this glorifying and enjoying thing. It’s funny, when you think about that, because most of us probably prayed that God would help us find our job, and most of us probably thank God for our job.
