What motivates you to get out of bed each day for work?

A friend of mine asked that question recently on social media

The most common response he got?


Now there are lots of good reasons to get up and work

So you can pay the bills

So you can feel a sense of satisfaction at completing a task

Even potentially leave behind a legacy

But there is one reason I think is more powerfully motivating than any of these

That is, love

Work gives us a chance to sacrificially love others through what we do and how we do it

This is precisely how God works

In everything He does He does it out of sacrificial love

A chance to work like the God of the universe works?

That’s a pretty powerful motivation for me
