Tonight we’re continuing with our fifth sermon in the series Your Work Matters, looking at what God says about our work.
We’ve seen that God is a worker. God created work to be good. It is a good gift from God to us. To give us satisfaction and self-expression. So that we can contribute good to those around us.
We’ve seen that our work is not ultimately for a paycheck or retirement or a boss. As Christians, we work as unto the Lord. We saw last time that when we go to work, we are preachers. Our life and our work is a sermon in shoes.
But tonight we want to look at how we can make work such a priority in our lives that it actually becomes the thing that drives us, the thing that consumes all our waking hours and in fact keeps us awake at night. Tonight we’re looking at “Help for Workaholics.”
In 1968, the term was coined from the word alcoholic. Which is why Rodney Dangerfield would quip, “My old man was a workaholic. Every time he thought about work, he got drunk.”
Some people hate to work. But others love it a little too much.
