Why work?

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.

  1. We labour not to be a burden to others (2 Thessalonians 3:81 Timothy 5:8)
  2. We labour to be able to share with others (Ephesians 4:28)
  3. In Jesus our labour is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58)
To be honest I really just posted this so that I can re-read it from time to time when my attitude needs a spring clean.
I have questions when I read these verses:
  1. Am I a burden to others?
  2. 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.
