Has your work become a burden?

How do you understand the work that you are doing? Is it your work or God’s work? Is it “my ministry” or God’s ministry? If you find your work no longer refreshing and filled with joyful anticipation, it is very likely that it has become your work and not God’s work. When we feel our work is a burden, we need to be reminded by the words of St. Paul: “We are God’s fellow workers…” (I Corinthians 3:9) When we join God’s work, we can relax understanding we are co-laborers with God. – Ron Friesen
