Colouring maps in pink

Post by Paul RT on Thu Mar 05, 2009 11:18 am

I was participating in an adult education class with some others. We were discussing career options and said that the most important or financially rewarding jobs would be in tax or finance.

As part of the instruction we were copying maps with dots and hatching, and had to colour them in. I was colouring most of the sections in pink or red.

Hi, Paul RT.

I've read this post a few times. Were there more details to the dream? I find myself wondering these kinds of questions:

In the dream, do you remember the teacher explaining how or why s/he wanted you to color the maps?
For example:
* "Color in pink the areas on the map that have [a particular resource] and
color in red areas that lack that resource."
* Or, "Use dots to show places where these kinds of jobs will most likely
happen and use hatches to show where these types of jobs probably
won't happen."

Did you and the others talk about other kinds of career options besides tax or finance?

Did you and the others use any other criteria for choosing careers besides focusing on ones which would be the most important or the most financially rewarding?

Was the group you were in equating the importance of a job with the financial reward it would provide? (even if in real life you might not feel this way?)

Hi Jodi

See responses below:

In the dream, do you remember the teacher explaining how or why s/he wanted you to color the maps?
For example:
* "Color in pink the areas on the map that have [a particular resource] and
color in red areas that lack that resource."
* Or, "Use dots to show places where these kinds of jobs will most likely
happen and use hatches to show where these types of jobs probably
won't happen."
A; No, but your conclusions make sense

Did you and the others talk about other kinds of career options besides tax or finance?
A: No, but my daughter works in that sector, and my first career was in banking. Not sure about any connection though.

Did you and the others use any other criteria for choosing careers besides focusing on ones which would be the most important or the most financially rewarding?

Was the group you were in equating the importance of a job with the financial reward it would provide? (even if in real life you might not feel this way?)

A: No. Maybe God is saying that I should. This could be the general meaning of the dream. At the moment I'm considering a job application for a new career path which would have a considerably higher salary, and He could be warning me to look past the financial benefits and consider the ministry implications

Thanks for your interest Jodi

Regards

Paul

Paul,
You're welcome. It's awesome that God is so interested in what we do and why. It can't hurt to consider the minsitry implications.

What if tax does represent your daughter and finance does represent you? Then this might mean that the most rewarding careers will be the things you and she do in partnership. Are the two of you considering partnering in some things - even if they're not necessarily business related?

Just an additional thought. - Jodi

Hi Jodi

She's been doing my tax returns of recent years, is getting married today, and her sister is trying to get out of a marriage where her manipulative husband lumbered her with his debt.

They're the only connections I can think of.

Maybe I should ask the one getting married about her career considerations



Thanks again for your interest Jodi

In Jesus
