Thankless jobs


Far from being things that demean us

Thankless jobs are portals to 

Our innermost motivations

Often forcing us to ‘dig deep’. 

In the absence of an applause 

A pat on the back 

Indeed even an acknowledgment of your existence,

How do you do your work?

Is it somehow less significant 

If it goes unseen?

Is it not enough to simply know 

That your work mattered 

Even though it wasn’t celebrated?

Thankless jobs are inherently generous-

Doing work in obscurity 

Not for the fame or the money 

But out of a deep love for 

God and thy neighbour
