Almost everyone works. You may not work due to age or for issues related to physical or intellectual abilities. If you’re a student, you’re not earning an income, you’re earning grades. If you’re a stay-at-home parent, your not raising money, you’re shaping the character of your children. And if you’re retired, you’re busy at something(s) most of your days.
So in this text, Paul gives us a vision for our work as Christians in the world by answering three crucial questions: What’s the Point of Work? What’s at Stake in our Work? And How’s it all Supposed to Work?
