Work & FaithChrist’s heart—living out through us!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. -Colossians 3: 23-24
Whatever I do, REALLY? Does this also mean my day-to-day job? How is my daily job “working for the Lord?” Am I actually able to demonstrate Christ’s heart and core biblical truths by counting widgets, pounding nails, driving a truck, working in an office, or whatever my daily work might be?
How many of us struggle with these or similar questions about our work and faith? Laurelville will be providing you an opportunity to explore these issues and more, plus learn how your daily work is truly an important service.
Mark your calendars and tell a friend. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn and discuss how other people wrestle with these questions. Watch for more information coming soon!
