THE PROBLEM WITH WORK …
No work! Bad work! Work-and-life balance that’s out of whack! Apart from personal health, work poses the biggest challenge to most people today. And why not? Most people spend most of their time in work-related activities (including preparing for work, commuting, and actually being in the workplace). People are most vulnerable where they spend most of their time.
When something goes wrong with work, it affects the whole person. Work and life are related in powerful ways.
THE SOLUTION FOR WORK PROBLEMS …
The deeper things in life work like this:
- God calls.
- We respond.
- Life happens.
Vocation is the source of our life’s work and the solution for most work-related problems. When God is at the center of our families and careers, we have hope. When we lose sight of Him, we lose our way.
Vocation works because God works! We serve a working God in whose image we were created (Gen 1:27 ).
