Series: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life
October 21, 2020 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes
Modern Americans work harder and for longer hours than almost ever before. And our work is not just a way of providing for ourselves and our families. Our work is a source of identity; it defines who we are. Our work is a source of meaning; it gives us purpose.
According to the writer of Ecclesiastes, however, work is like wealth. It is vain. If we look to it to provide meaning and happiness, it will inevitably disappoint us. So how can we relate to work wisely? What is the difference between good and bad work? How do we work well?
Where shall wisdom be found? How can we navigate life amidst crises? What guidance has God given us? Explore questions like these in Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job.
