Millennials Must Laugh at Work

There is all this hootenanny about millennials (or Generation Y or iY) in the workplace. I am one. I’m the only one in my office. Many managers in the age groups of baby-boomers and older are curious about us. They try to understand us as we walk into the front doors of their operations and reality sets in. There is not a whole lot out there on how we millennials can understand our older co-workers.

Advice of the day to my fellow millennials:

Choose to laugh despite barriers brought about by age difference.
Let communication and technological frustrations role off your shoulders, and laugh.
Laugh with them, not at them.
Always consider their advice and/or reasoning, even it if makes you laugh.

With a Posture to be Impacted

leave a comment »

Don’t we think we have it figured out sometimes?  Consider “it” to be any daily challenge, task, or circumstance.  I am guilty of this.  More often than not, I operate with the assumption of: I got this…

sewed up.  mastered.  figured out.  dominated.  duh.

My devotional this morning put me in my place.  Even if I am right about having it figured out on occasion, the truth is I am still:

screwed up.  a 26 year old novice.  clueless.  defeated.  faking it.

What I read this morning was warning and advice from King Solomon.  He was arguably the most successful and knowledgeable man to ever live.  The writer of my devotional ascertained the following in his commentary. Affluence and success destroy hope and produce despair.

Oh baby!  Talk about counter-cultural!  It is an easy concept really.  If you have it “figured out,” then you have no need to rely on anyone or anything.  In other words, you have nothing to hope for, because affluence and success is already yours.  To the part about despair, well, have you ever seen anyone fall from the top?  Familiar story if priorities are out of whack, right?  Let’s stretch our thinking even further with this factoid: by His grace, God has ordained this life to not satisfy.  Sounds right to me.  Ever been hungry or thirsty or upset because you didn’t get your way?  Whether we have much or have not, we want more.  Don’t fret, for heaven will be satisfying!

Let’s apply.  Lately, I have been in a place of satisfaction in my circumstances.  When I have opened God’s Word, I have not approached it with a posture to be impacted.  I’ve studied it.  I’ve answered question in my Bible study companion workbook.  My approach derives from my attitude of satisfaction.  It is a lie.  It is shallow satisfaction.  I have felt it!  It does not feel good.  The false satisfaction spills into my marriage, relationships, and energy throughout the day – it drains me without me knowing.  Interestingly, it sounds like the despair my devotional introduced this morning.  There is a need for change.

Not a big change in my opinion.  Just a change in posture and approach.  The Lord guides my steps, and He has put me in this place of false satisfaction which somehow – beyond my comprehension, thankfully – returns glory to Him.  No doubt about it, He has me in His hands.   Yet, I have free will and a responsibility to respond to the gospel.  How can I do that each morning as I open God’s Word?  Simply, enter into time with Him ready to be impacted by the hope He gives, because I do not have it figured at all.

Reason to Rejoice in Death

leave a comment »

Gladys Janeway is now with God in Heaven.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:11-14 NIV)

How long does the “best foot” need to stay forward before you can just let people see your feet for what they are?
