This week we are continuing our study of some of the wisdom contained in the book of Proverbs.  This week we are looking at Proverbs 14:23

All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. (NIV)


This short verse says a lot.  What part stands out to you? 

This Sunday let’s talk about work.  Do we live to work or work to live? 

All work leads to profit.  That’s what is says right…?

The work I do at my job?

The chores I do at home?

What about when I volunteer my time?

All work leads to profit? 

What questions do you have?

Does everything we do really matter?

As you think about our Proverbs passage this week, let me remind you of Colossians 3:23-24…

Whatever task you must do, work as if your soul depends on it, as for the Lord and not for humans, 24 since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ.  (NRSVUE)

Let’s talk about it on Sunday.
