Written "To a certain engineer who complained about his boring job," St. Nikolai wrote the following. Each job contains some vein of gold that can be found after some effort is put into mining for it (to borrow from St. John Chrysostom's imagery). Hopefully the below is helpful for other and not just for me.
My young friend, what better job are you seeking? Is there any other better than yours? The Apostle Peter was a fisherman, and the Apostle Paul wove mats. Consider how much more important and interesting your job is than theirs, and thank Providence Who entrusted you with such an occupation.
Wishing you health, and may the blessings of the Lord be upon you!
