What Does Work Have to Do with Worship?

Seedbed - Seven Minute Seminary

Work is one of those things that pervades life and yet we do so little reflection on it, both theologically and spiritually. We invest so much time and money in education and self-reflection in order to get the career we want, and yet, we spend so little time preparing ourselves for the day to day task of honoring God in our work. This is due partly to our sharp distinction between sacred and secular, long encouraged in our culture by divisions like “church and state.” Does the Bible have anything to say about work? It may just be that work is more intimately connected to spirituality than we imagined.
