We call my son the pot-head-in-the-basement. He doesn’t smoke pot, and he doesn’t live in the basement, but he accurately epitomized the archetype of burnout. He is generally happy and easy going- maybe too easy going. Too lazy to hold his bottle, his sinful nature was slacker from day one. It took him years to work, and winced when we suggested he go to college or get a job as if we were torturing him. How dare we? Didn’t we love him? Chicks don’t like unemployed men, I’d say. “Those who don’t work, neither shall he eat,” I’d say.
He needs to work for God and find his place. We are God’s employees, his staff. Working for God is joyful, though it often yanks us out of our comfort zones. The body of Christ is the world’s best company. We have the perfect boss. We will even work in heaven.
All of God’s creatures have their niche. They have the perfect fit. He finally got a job, and loves it. He has found his part in God’s company serving people. He has found joy as part of the staff.
