Matter of Perspective

There is an old story about three construction workers who were laboring on a building in a downtown area. Although they were all doing the exact same job, they gave different answers to the question, “What are you doing?”

One of them responded, “I’m putting in eight hours a day.” Another answered, “I’m making $20 an hour.” The last one said, “I am helping to build a church.”

All three were doing the same work, but notice the difference in their mindset. Only one of the workers actually gave an answer that reflected the ultimate importance of his work. It’s all a matter of perspective. No matter what you do, keeping your eye on the big picture will greatly benefit your outlook on life, and will have a positive influence on those around you.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”—1 Corinthians 10:31.
