A post on the Desiring God blog caught (and held) my attention last week. It communicates what a Godly attitude to work looks like. The three points and associated scriptures are listed here but check out the full post here.
- We labour not to be a burden to others (2 Thessalonians 3:8, 1 Timothy 5:8)
- We labour to be able to share with others (Ephesians 4:28)
- In Jesus our labour is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58)
- Am I a burden to others?
- Am I able to share with others?
Often I feel the Yes/No answers to these questions are the wrong way round in my life.
