Your Work Matters to God

A (Brief) Biblical Worldview on Work

1.  God Works and God Loves the Work He Does.

2.  God created us in HIS own image, that means we too are designed to work.

3.  God commanded Adam and Eve to work.

4.  The work they did was to be meaningful since it was their way of partnering with God to create a world of culture.

5.  Sin damaged, but not destroyed work.

6.  The damage of sin takes a myriad of forms. Work has become difficult, frustrating, less productive, at times oppressive, and the systems of ownership and distribution are certainly unfair and inequitable.

A Look at Our Worldview

 

Since I was first introduced to the 'Waterline Model' several years ago I have been fascinated by many of the 'below the waterline' issues that have such a strong influence on our lives.  One of those, our worldview, has been a front burner issue for me as I come to grips with how my secular worldview has infected my spirituality.  The influence is often sneaky, subtle, and even insidious.  It usually invites me to glorify myself and forget about God.  My sin patterns are bolstered by these influences causing me to fall to temptations with alarming regularity.
