Part of the DNA within a man is found through their occupation. Unfortunately, many struggle to find a job which compliments and highlights their God given talents. Subsequently, when Christmas and holiday parties arrive in a few weeks, these conversations are often unpleasant, a constant reminder of one’s frustration of being an outcast, not where you feel like God wants you to be.
The appetite of laborers works for them; their hunger drives them on, Proverbs 16:26.
If and when you find that ideal situation, you don’t need any motivation to get out of bed. Rather, every day drives and motivates individuals, excited to pursue that path they are on. Perhaps, this is what Solomon means by the hunger of laborers. This state drives workers, providing a sense of purpose until their job or task is complete. Anyone who has never experienced or tasted this sensation yearns for the day you find the perfect match.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him, Colossians 3:17.
For those of us who are a work in progress, the apostle Paul provides sound advice. While on the journey called life, every deed and word count. Therefore, dedicate your life to the Lord. If you lose your way, remember the words of Hosea 4:6. Since people perish without vision, set short term goals, serving as markers to lead your way. God willing, you will one day find the hunger of laborers.
