"People today often seem to think they have a right to a job that is pleasant and fulfilling all the time. They become indignant when life isn't like that. They're like Christians who expect God to make them healthy all the time. We live in a fallen world that is not yet redeemed. So we should not be surprised if work is often boring or frustrating. We will face the temptation to be idle, to opress others or to treat work as an idol. And even if we are able to resist those pressures, we will undoubtedly experience all those things among our work colleagues. The answer is to have a gospel-centred understanding of work, as a good thing ruined by the fall. And to set your sights on the new creation, when work will be a genuine delight."
