We’re created for work, but on this fallen side of Eden, it can be a toil.
It’s been labelled the 9-to-5 grind, a dog eats dog world, the rat race, and brings to mind toxic workmates, long hours, and the looming dread of Mondays.
But work can give us a sense of purpose and fulfilment when we use our God-given talents to solve a problem, cure an illness, or create something beautiful. And there’s also that wonderful feeling of seeing our pay in our bank account.
This month, we want to relook work, to see it the way God had initially intended it to be–a good thing. We want to bring God back into our work, for “His favour to rest on us as He establishes the work of our hands” (Psalm 90:17).
The angles we’re exploring include work-life balance, ambition and success, picking ourselves up again after failures, and yielding ourselves to God–to name a few. But we cannot do this without you! If you have something you’d like to share about work, check our writer’s guidelines and write to us.
