Why are you working?

“It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, but why he does it.” — A. W. Tozer

I have listened to so many people ranking occupations as to whether they are Godly or not.  Being a preacher, missionary, evangelist, priest or monk might qualify as spiritual.  But surely being a truck driver, farmer, internet marketer or dentist was just “secular” work.

How about this perspective then – what you do is not the issue.  “Why” you do it tells whether what you’re doing is sacred or secular.
