Your secular job is God’s work

Your secular job is God’s work

Share this Article

Anyone that believes in Christ is on God’s team and has a special assignment. It doesn’t matter whether you are a pastor or not; as long as you are a child of God, you have been called and given the ability to work for the Lord in all that you do, including your secular job. Not many believers in secular employment or business however see themselves doing God’s work. I recently read about Cathie Wood, a wildly successful fund manager who knows that she is doing God’s work. Cathie is the founder of flagship Ark investment innovation fund, a $23bn fund that includes a number of tech stocks such as Tesla, Spotify and Teladoc Health. The open secret to Wood’s investment belief lies in the name of her fund – a direct reference to the gold-covered chest described in the Book of Exodus as containing the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. Cathie starts everyday by reading the Bible while her coffee brews and she had relied on her faith during testing moments for example many market upheavals she has experienced in her 40-year career in finance. Cathie once said “It’s not so much about me and my promise. It’s about allocating capital to God’s creation in the most innovative and creative way possible.” Profound. You too can bring glory to God in your secular job by being the best in what you do and being a positive influence in the lives of the people you meet in the market place.

“…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” Scripture

I recently sat down with eight Durban University of Technology (South Africa) students to answer questions about my life purpose and values and much more.

May we live a life of purpose and fulfill our destiny in Jesus name. Amen!
