Gallup 2022 summary of how workers are doing, globally. It is eye opening! Excerpt: 

81,396 hours.
That’s how much of life most of us spend working. The only thing we spend more time doing is sleeping. If we spend so much of life at work, how is life at work going?


According to the world’s workers, not well. Gallup finds 60% of people are emotionally detached at work and 19% are miserable. But is that a surprise, or a statistical explanation of the obvious?


The idea that “work sucks” is everywhere. It’s been the subject of ancient philosophers, world leaders, your colleagues and even pop culture. Comedian George Carlin once quipped, “Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.”

Audio recording from the book “Mere Christianity” by CS Lewis.  Just one chapter, titled “Count the Cost”.  In summary – how God desires to make us perfect, that is the only goal, to be like Him.  To be Third.  If we say “yes” nothing can stop us from reaching that goal – as He will make it happen.  It will cost you, it will be a tough journey (look at the life of Jesus, the Apostles!) but that is what God designed us to be, before time began, to be like Him.  To be perfect.  Will you say “yes”?  It will cost you – but you will begin the journey to be transformed into Jesus, as He guides you, to be transformed full of His love and mercy and the ability to richly bless others.  Read by Craig Carter, recorded June 22, 2024.  Audio Clip – 10min
