Defining Purpose: Finding God’s Will for Our Work

Calling versus Career

A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .


Have you ever felt like your work doesn’t matter to God?  That the only way to do real ministry is to leave the marketplace and find employment at a local church or charity?


We can forget that ALL work is a form of worship and a path to ministry.  In the Book of Genesis, the first thing God did for Adam, before the Fall, was to give him a job.


Fulfilling God’s purpose for our work is an important part of fulfilling His purpose for our life.  If we’re serious about loving the Lord with all our heart and soul and mind, as Jesus counsels in The Great Commandment, then we must apply it to our work.


God may be calling you to deeper spiritual service in your current work, or perhaps to a new kind of work.  Whatever the case, it’s only when we ask, listen and submit to His will that our work is elevated from a worldly career to a spiritual calling.



  1. Where do you see spiritual value in the work you are currently undertaking?


  1. When you wrestle with calling versus career, do you ask for God’s guidance?  Can you discern His response?  Will you submit to His will for your work?




Dear Lord, please help us to see the spiritual significance of work through Your eyes.  As we pursue spiritual growth at work, please help me to fulfill Your will. 


At work on Your purposes - Amen
