Work. Is it suffering or sacred? We frequently conceptualize work in two ways: it’s either a form of toil – a means to make an income, or it becomes an idol – an endless pursuit we ultimately worship. As a result of the fall, our work has become frustrated. Escaping from life’s difficulties into our job will not fulfill us, and escaping into hobbies will only distract us from real life work that must be done. God is in the business of redeeming our understanding of work, to see it as a set of responsibilities entrusted to us in order to develop our faith and make our fallen world better. Work is not limited to our jobs; it includes energy we expend to every avenue of life. Let’s join together to discuss our sacred calling to work with excellence for God’s kingdom in our new series: A Theology of Work.
