Career Choice|Take Advice from the Bible

By Margaret W. Lavigne 

How to choose a career?

According to the Bible’s instruction, “one’s gift is prophecy” and you know the way to where you are going (Romans 12:6).In God’s grace, each of us receives different talents from God that we can do certain things particularly well. By wasting our talents, we fall short of God’s expectations.

The Bible says, “A large house contains not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay. Some indeed are for honorable use, but others are for common use. So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:20).

The Bible says, everyone is  God’s “workmanship” (Ephesians 2:10).

God commands us to work“heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23-24). For we are God’s “workmanship” (Ephesians 2:10). In Ephesians 5:15-17, it says “Be very careful… making the most of every opportunity… Do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”Blessed is the one who executes God’s law “day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2).

Indisputably, God will “reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve” at the proper time (Jeremiah 32:19). Thus, those who “persevere under trial” will be “approved” by God and “will receive the crown of life,” namely eternal life (James 1:12). Anyone who “stands firm” in the righteousness and abide by God’s preaching “to the end will be saved” (Joel 2:13).

By wasting our talents, we fall short of God’s expectations. It’s worth noting that God demands us to “show the same diligence until the end (Hebrews 6:11-12). According to the Bible’s instruction, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might” (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

 Hard work will pay off in the end. The Bible says, “Work with your hands” so that you may “be dependent on no one”(1 Thessalonians 4:11-12). 

In God’s grace, each of us receives different gifts from God that we can do certain things particularly well. By wasting our talents, we fall short of God’s expectations. The Bible says, “A large house contains not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay. Some indeed are for honourable use, but others are for common use. So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:20).

“Hide not your talents, they for use were made.”― Benjamin Franklin

The Bible says, it is not “glorious to seek one’s own glory” (Proverbs 25:27). According to the Bible, “For those who are self-seeking” and who “follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil…but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good… For God does not show favouritism” and all who sin will be judged  “will be judged by the law”(Romans 2:8-12).

The Bible says, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong”(1 Corinthians 16:13).

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and a dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems, and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies, and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Stop recording the faults of others and practice compassion mediation instead.我喜歡文字,大概是因為我喜歡永恆的東西,而世上多數的東西都不是。不是所有人都需要心靈雞湯,如果你絕對正向而強壯。養心養身,而潛意識24小時不睡覺,身體自癒的開關落在潛意識的區塊,只有絕對入骨的正向樂觀才能痊癒,恐懼傷骨傷腎,老人家們容易膝蓋牙齒不好是因為恐懼多憂慮多。中醫主張生悶氣、恐懼、悲觀和過食是疾病的根源。自認不是棉花糖的勵志派,是寫實警世的定位,但我肯定有邏輯基礎的正向思考,Bible很多內容都很科學,也符合中醫的論點。佛教主張前世今生的因果論,而 Bible主張人生只有一回,但人生必有難題。難題分兩種,一種是磨練鍛鍊心智的training,好好表現,災難的背後會有禮物。禍福相依,壞消息可能帶來跳板、第三條路的視野、或逆境激發潛力。好消息往往伴隨更多責任挑戰,甚至暗藏陷阱,很多好消息最後變成頭痛點。第二種難題是試煉,上蒼期望你我在逆境中堅守,試煉,是上蒼決定該不該給你我天堂入場卷的門票!猶太人虔誠,但他們的教堂沒有神像沒有十字架,只有書(因為信仰在心中)。人生有很多上蒼的隨堂考,當掉就要重修(歷史就會重演)。氣生災,如果你我相信成功需要幸運,把「柔」做好,就可以賺福氣。Bible強調柔軟的力量、自律、謙卑、口舌之禍及傲慢之惡。寫信給站長(責任編輯)司馬儀: jpsiawase@gmail.com 如果遭受暴力(家暴,或霸凌)、性侵或性騷擾或任何身心虐待,撥打113保護專線,24小時全年無休。生活學業工作等等困擾,撥打安心專線「1925」。若簽約租賃碰到詐騙,撥打165反詐騙專線(警察)或內政部警政署反詐騙諮詢專線:0800-018-110
