As followers of Christ, it is our job to fulfill God’s intention for work so that He is glorified. But sometimes all we do is work! We spend all of our time to work to get the goals done, to be successful.
The solution to the work addiction is not just cutting down on hours. That simply creates a more frustrated workaholic.
What needs to change is our thinking about work. That only comes as we adopt a stewardship mindset about work.
God is the owner of all who has appointed us to work for Him. If we begin to live to please God in our work, instead of trying to meet all the demands of others or endlessly trying to prove ourselves, we will find balance.
Psalms 127:2 declares, “In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for he grants sleep to those he loves.” (New International Version)
This seems to teach us how dependent on Go d we are to bless our work efforts. If we trust God, we can be at rest about success and sleep.
How are you doing with balance? Are you being a good steward of your time?
