Ten Commandments of Work

Ten Commandments of Work

This week we begin our series called Happy Monday. Your work is incredibly important to your life.; you define yourself in part by the job you do, you fantasize about what job is next, and you engage with or avoid people based on their jobs. Work defines us. What’s more than that is that your work is incredibly important to God. Work is kingdom ordained and kingdom oriented, meaning that our work carries purpose not only for us but as we grow and engage with God. Yet our work can be challenging, leading us to resentment, joylessness, and burnout. So, what do we do with the problem and the potential for work?

This week we are diving into a series that helps us to uncover how our work life and our God life come into one. We will be exploring how we can find joy, purpose, and happiness in our work lives. By exploring the 10 Commandments for work, we will reshape our approach and understanding of the jobs we do. Join us as we learn how to find joy in our work.
