Money Magazine created another article that I am always interested in reading. It was a list of the top 10 best paying jobs in the U.S.. It’s funny, every time I see one of these lists there are always lots of comments disputing what is listed. In a previous list I put up about 25 good paying jobs you could get without a degree, there were lots of comments arguing against the average salaries listed. So, take it with a grain of salt – even if it isn’t 100% accurate, it still is interesting to see what professions we as a nation highly esteem (hence the high rate of pay).
Money’s Top 10 best paying jobs
So here is the list from Money Magazine…
Thoughts about the top-paying careers
As you would bet you don’t see teachers, police officers, or social workers on the list. But it is nice to see that health professionals are topping the list. Many of them go to school for a decade, work crazy hours, and in crazy conditions and devote their lives to improving the health of their patients.
I would love to see Pastors get paid more (and dare I say appear on this list?). While Pastoring a church is a full-time job in itself, many of them have to do it in addition to their day-job. It would be great if all the pastors could devote all their time to pastoring, rather than working another job to pay the bills.
The U.S. has been a blessed nation because traditionally we have put God first. Without Pastors shepherding the flock, this country would be in a much worse spot than it is.
