One of the fascinating things you see when you go to Mueller's BBQ in Taylor is the wall of business cards that people have been sticking up there for years, the older ones revealing their age by their darkened complexion from having been exposed to many years of smoke from the kitchen. So many different lines of work and business opportunities are represented, from years ago to the present day. To be sure, people go in there to eat, taking a delicious break from whatever work they do all day long. But as much as they may want to stay in there, they eventually need to return to work, especially if they want to be able to afford the chance to come back another day.
Work is good, and we were made to accomplish, create, and serve others in unique and significant ways. But whatever we do for our vocation, which we can do in a God glorifying way, there is another profound work that God calls us to, and that is to believe in Jesus. Jesus said it Himself, and it makes all the difference for whatever other tasks and opportunities you may accomplish in life. Indeed, it is what grounds any other work in eternity.
“The work God wants you to do is this: to believe in the One that God sent.” - John 6:29 ICB
