Father Josh tells a story of his first "real" job and how he almost got himself fired. Fortunately, his manager saw through his sense of arrogance and entitlement and gave him some sound advice (and another chance to keep his job).
He told Josh to be proud of the job you do, not the job you have.
But don't stop there, do your most excellent work, and take pride in doing this, then share the honor with God and be thankful that you can do God's work in the world. May you never boast of anything except the cross of Christ.
