The temptation to worry about work is a big one, isn't it? Maybe for men more than for women, because of the way we're wired, but still, to some extent, I think we all fret about finances. No matter what stage you and I find ourselves in professionally—whether looking for a job, earnestly trying to be a good employee in an enjoyable position, searching for a way into a new career, or moving into retirement—Jesus has the answer:
"Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you... The work of God is this: to believe the one he has sent." ~ John 6:27, 29
God promises to provide everything we need, so, why worry?
Reading these verses today made me realize that as I apply biblical principles of stewardship regarding money (be generous, live simply, etc.), I can relax and trust God with my career.
Worry, as usual, is a gigantic waste of time. Think I'll try believing Jesus instead.
