“Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.” – Khalil Gibran
Work with love today. Allow yourself to be filled with joy as your work.
Work can and will be better when done with love.
The Bible suggests we do our work “as if we are working for the Lord”, work being love made visible is saying the same thing.
This is a choice for us to make. The hard stuff and difficulties of work will still be there. It’s not an excuse to quit and sit at the temple gates and beg, it’s a challenge to bring our best.
We bring and do our best when our work is infused with purpose. And (maybe?) there’s no greater purpose than love.
What would change in your work day if it was filled with love?
What would change in your interactions if they were filled with love?
What would love made visible look like for you?
Make it a great day.
