Thought of the Week

Is your work a distraction or a calling? At the recent Men’s Breakfast we dove into an in depth discussion around the biblical idea of work and God’s intention for it.

We discovered through scripture work is something God created for our benefit and enjoyment. For so long I believed work was bad and not something fitting for a “true” Christian. I believed missionaries and pastors were the only people doing God’s actual work and as a result I hated what I was doing.

I have since discovered work is a calling and the challenge is determining where in the work place we are called. What do I enjoy? What am I good at? By answering questions like these, I have discovered my mission field and ministry has become fun and effortless.

What questions do you need to ask yourself to discover your mission field?
