Mondays have a tough reputation. They start the week off and bring the burden of looking at the long task list for the upcoming week. They represent the meaningless toil and grief as described by the author of Ecclesiastes. It is the never-ending cycle that God spoke to Cain. But it is also an opportunity; the same dirt Cain had to toil with is also the same dirt that God used to create humanity.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are the mundane tasks in your profession that come across as meaningless?
2. How can those same mundane tasks have meaningful value to you, your peers or your customers?
Challenge: Look for the added value that each of your tasks have today. How does that value help others? Is it truly meaningless?
