Jeremiah’s Calling to Work (Jeremiah 1)

As I have stated before, part of the reason behind this blog is to point people to biblical resources they might not have known about. In this case, this brief article on the value of work comes from the Theology of Work Project. Check it out!

God’s Presence in our Struggles at Work (Psalm 23)

Reconciling the Whole World (2 Corinthians 5:16–21)

Here is a short commentary on the importance of reconciliation. As Christians, we are called to assist Christ in reconciling the world to God. This also includes being agents of reconciliation in our work place or our church. From the Theology Of Work Project…………………

Book Review: Work and Rest God’s Way

Work and Rest God’s Way: A Biblical Recipe for Finding Joy and Purpose in All You Do (Scott LaPierre; Charis Publishing; 2019)

This book takes an in-depth view of work and rest, and how those two major aspects of life fit into God’s plan for His children. Taking a broad view of work as any activity where energy and effort is expended, the author shows that the Bible teaches that God created work, and so work is good and a blessing. Our lives have more meaning and value to us when we engage in our work in a godly fashion.

Along those lines, the book examines the negative consequences of laziness, and the opposite problem of workaholism. The book also reviews how work comes into play in marriage, and how a proper view of work benefits both husbands and wives. Strategies are provided for parents to aid them in teaching their children and young adults the value of industrious and productive work.

The author also spends a good amount of the book explaining what rest and sleep are, why God apparently made humans to need rest and sleep, and how to rest in ways that reflect the ways of God, and that do not lead to idleness.

This book is very informative, and mostly stays away from using too many life illustrations, rather it focuses on the Bible and the truths articulated there regarding work and rest. Recommended for all believers, because we all have some type of work we do every day.
