Sermon Text:
Ecclesiastes 2:17-26
“Your work is a very sacred matter.  God delights in it, and through it He wants to bestow His blessings on you.  The praise of work should be inscribed on all tools, on the forehead and faces that sweat from toiling.”

– Martin Luther

Reflection Points

  • Do I work for the praise of others, the world right now… or the world to come?
  • What rewards am I seeking in my work?
  • Do I pray, plan, perspire to make more money so that I can give more money away?
  • Ask yourself this week, ‘what is God going to do in my work today?’ ‘How will He unnerve me, expose my illusions, draw me closer to Him, use me here, & bless others through my work?’
