THEOLOGY OF WORK
The sub-title of this series of lessons is: Theology of Work. One of our goals in this study is to begin to construct a theology of work. Each lesson is a building block in this journey. Here is where we are in this construction process:
Building Block #1: God is the original worker.
Building Block #2: We are uniquely designed for work.
Building Block #3: God gifts us for meaningful work.
Building Block #4: Work offers us an opportunity for healthy independence.
God has designed us for community, not isolation. However, He has created us as individuals. So, we have to have some measure of healthy independence to function normally in community with others. Working for a living enables us to develop a level of independence that is normal and healthy for everyone. Working for a living keeps us from depending on others for our basic necessities of life.
