How vs. Where

No matter what it is, your work can be meaningful. Our work is spiritual because of how we work, not where we work. All work has spiritual importance. We are called. That is what matters.

He Saw That It Was Good p. 45

Where vs. what is an interesting conversation to have. I agree with him that the how is far more important than the where. Paul’s “I can do all things …” is critical here. At the same time, I’ve been contemplating how the where—while not trumping the how, might indeed trump the what. We cannot forsake community for the “right” job. That is not sustainable. 

We research neighborhoods, cost of living, schools, entertainment options, and healthcare—none of which is necessarily wrong, but do we think through the spiritual aspects of a job change?
