Our ability to work is central not only to the ability to provide for our families, it contributes to our sense of fulfillment. The Bible guides us to be working “for the Lord and not for men” (Colossians 3:23). Regardless of where or who we work for, we are to perform our duties like we are working to please God.
Many workplace problems can interfere with our ability to work diligently and maintain a productive attitude. Many of us are vulnerable to discouragement at our jobs. Many problems such as workplace stress and demands, balancing work and family life, conflict with co-workers, mental health issues, and physical health issues can prevent us from performing our work duties in the way that God intended.
