Success is not defined by position or pay scale but by this: doing the most what you do the best.  Pursue the virtue of contentment. “Godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Tim. 6:6). When choosing or changing jobs, be careful. Consult your design. Consult your Designer. But never consult your greed.~Max Lucado

Do you love what you do?  When we tell our kids what to be when they grow up, is it based on salary or satisfaction?  Consult the designer that made you for a purpose, you were not created haphazardly. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Tim. 6: 10b  

Examine your perspective toward life.

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 
1 Timothy 6:11-12

  1. Amen,

    For some money may be the result of what God has in store for them. For many others this is not the case as the many goal is to make God known. I am truly grateful for the grace and mercy and opportunity God has given me through my occupations. I continually learn that, “it will rain if God wills it.” My occupations have been about relationship more than monitary concern and through both God has been good.
