When the work is done
When the work is done, does it feel like ticking a box in our checklist?
Does it feel like something is done but another will come?
Does it feel fulfilling?
Does it feel empty?
Does it feel meaningful?
Does it feel absurd?
If our work is sucking the soul out of our humanity, then we have found a dead end. If our work has led us to grow and be more human, then we have found a vocation. Thus, we must choose the work we commit to, for it might very well define how we would lead our lives.
John 17:1-11A. I have glorified you on the earth; I have finished the work which you gave me to do.
