Ordinary Work, Extraordinary Opportunity

We interact far more often with little people doing little jobs than with great people working great jobs. We spend far more of our lives with baristas, cashiers, and customer service agents than we do with athletes, surgeons, and presidents—people we fancy as having the truly fulfilling occupations. And these little interactions really do brighten or darken our days. Tim Challies Including the example of a Flight Attendant, Tim Challies writes on the large influence and opportunity we have in our “normal” and “unexciting” jobs. https://www.challies.com/articles/ordinary-work-extraordinary-opportunity/?fbclid=IwAR1lvRKp4XmBij4zZSLO4ncLoAvQs7KcVQ6qDuy_emOmTGk5VfpYgUXZGHU Aircraft image by Erasmus Kamugisha on Wikimedia Commons

Book on Work

Two years ago, Tim Challies wrote this review on Daniel M Doriani’s then new book, “Work”. It comes with high praise and is suggested as a worthwhile read on the subject. https://www.challies.com/book-reviews/work-its-purpose-dignity-and-transformation/

Listen to him

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.Mark 1:9-13 (NIV) I could try and find some segue between these verses and our industry, like comparing…

He said what about Jesus?!

As well as serving passengers ourselves, as airline crew we are also accustomed to people serving us. We arrive at the airport, often someone takes our bags off the belt for us, we get escorted to a nice car where someone opens a door for us and loads our bags for us,

We Seek Your Kingdom

You could be at work. Maybe you’re looking after the kids. Or seeing friends (finally). But whatever sphere of society you’re in, God can work through you to bring his kingdom there – as in heaven. ‘We Seek Your Kingdom’, a whole-life worship song to the tune of much-loved hymn ‘Abide With Me’, written by Noel Robinson, Andy Flannagan, and Graham Hunter, inspires us to see our daily tasks through God’s eyes – and live out the prayer ‘your kingdom come’ in every part of life. Commissioned by LICC and Thy Kingdom Come, it’s an encouragement and a call to action – a…

It is finished

Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.John 19:28-30 What exactly was “it”? What was finished? Matthew Henry wrote eight answers to that question, including this one: “It is finished, that is, the work of man’s…

Choosing What’s Best

The 8th of March is International Women’s Day. Out of interest, it was on this very day back in 1910, that Baroness Raymonde de la Roche (what a fantastic name!) became the first woman in the world to receive a pilot’s licence. It was just the 36th licence issued by the “Aeroclub de France”. Googling her story makes for interesting reading if you are a fellow aviation history enthusiast. Approaching today, I just happened, to be up to Luke 10 in my Bible reading, which includes a brief story of two women: Jesus at the home of Mary and Martha. As Jesus and…
