Sunday Reflection: Freedom in Self-Forgetfulness

Our work should be a source of joy and liberation as we can use our God-given abilities to serve Him, so we can’t fall into selfish thinking.

To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.

Though it might not always feel like it, jobs are a blessing. Our work allows us to utilize God-given talents, provide for our families, and grow both personally and professionally. (See 1 Cor. 10:31.) However, when we feel overlooked or sense that our contributions aren’t valued, emotions like anger or envy get in the way. What should be a source of delight and fulfillment becomes drudgery we avoid at all costs.

The trouble starts when we think of ourselves as individuals rather than as members of the community. We are here to serve and help one another, after all—not to be served (Matt. 20:20-28). That’s why God’s Word says, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility consider one another as more important than yourselves” (Phil. 2:3). Putting ourselves last allows us to lay petty concerns down instead of becoming defensive. Then we can experience freedom in the truest sense of the word.

Think about it

How do you feel about your work? Is it a source of joy and liberation? If not, how can you begin to think about it differently?
