Part 1 - 08/31/15

A new way of looking at your job

In our waking hours, we spend about eight to ten hours at work. Work occupies a large part of our lives. Today, special guest Scott Rae joins us to talk about our work as both a calling and a vocation. Listen in as we discuss some life-changing concepts.

Part 2 - 09/01/15

Work as God originally created it

A lot of people live for the weekend, dragging in to work on Monday and counting down to Friday. But God wants us to have a different attitude about our work week.

Part 3 - 09/02/15

Who our real boss is

Imagine you’re at work, and just a few steps from you, or in that office upstairs, was the Lord Jesus Himself! How would you work differently? Today our special guest, Scott Rae, reminds us that the Lord Jesus is on the job with us!

Part 4 - 09/03/15

Growing our relationship with God while we work

Today we continue looking at how we can honor God while on the job.

Part 5 - 09/04/15

A conclusion we all need to hear

Americans might be tempted to roll their eyes at the shorter work week that some nations are known for. But the people of those nations might shake their heads at the number of hours Americans put in at work. So, what’s the proper balance?

Part 6 - 09/07/15

What should our attitude be about work?

When we meet someone for the first time, we usually ask “What do you do?” So much of our identity is linked to our work, but how do we keep our jobs from defining us completely? Listen in as we explore our relationship to our labors.

Part 7 - 09/08/15

Are contentment and ambition enemies?

The word “ambition” often is used with suspicion in Christian circles. Perhaps because the word “selfish” is often associated with it! Don’t miss this important discussion.

Part 8 - 09/09/15

Behind the Bible’s stories about the rich and the poor

Wealth and possessions have divided people ever since time began. Jesus spoke into this division when He said, “life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.”

Part 9 - 09/10/15

How can we use the wealth God has given us?

The Bible makes it clear that God calls us to offer care and compassion for the poor. The Old Testament prophets were burdened for the poor. In fact, Isaiah told God’s people that it was better to help the needy than to fast.

Part 10 - 09/11/15

Truth-telling and the workplace

We see it all the time, advertisements for products with misleading information and guarantees built on false promises. Don’t miss this thought-provoking conversation as we conclude our series on Faith at Work!
