Truth be told, I’m a little torn talking about “work” this week as I’m writing from a tropical family vacation in the Caribbean! Then again, if vacation is the product of hard work then maybe it’s the perfect setting for this week’s lesson! We’re beginning a new section our author calls “No More Clock Punching”. For this week, please study devotion days 69-73.
Tony Evans sets the priorities of work right out of the gate when he declares that “work came before sin” in the Garden of Eden. God toiled for 6 days of “work” when He made Creation. Allow that one to sink in.
This week’s readings are not designed to say anyone who doesn’t work is a sinner. Rather I believe it’s designed to allow us to focus on “why” God created work. As I say each week, it will take you 10 minutes to read this week’s assignment but I’d encourage you to ponder about it for a couple days. It’s a fascinating read this week!
Jon Paschal leads us this week. Still looking for leaders the final 3 weeks of our series so if you’re led to sign up, please do so or let me know! We’ll gather virtually over Zoom or in the Treehouse this Friday beginning at 7:30 am ET.
Now…..let’s all get to work!
