Reframing Our Work

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31

Too often we view our work as a curse rather than a divine calling.  Renowned author Dorothy Sayers is precisely right in observing that we need "a thoroughgoing revolution in our whole attitude to work."  Namely, that our work should be viewed not as a necessary drudgery to be undergone for the purpose of making money, but as a way of life in which we find personal delight and magnify God's glory.  Sayer's believes work, "should be thought of as a creative activity undertaken for the love of the work itself; and that. . . [men and women], made in God's image, should make things, as God makes them, for the sake of doing well a thing that is well worth doing."

With the right attitude your work can be a source of personal blessing and a vehicle for glorifying God. 

"Train yourself to recognize the hand of God in everything that happens to you."- Andrew Murray (1828-1917)
