My work

Paul made tents for a living. It wasn’t how he defined his work. His work was to help people understand the good news that God has for those who come into his life. It wasn’t even something he was talented at. It was a gift from God. He wasn’t qualified to do it but God gave him everything he needed to succeed.

My work is not what I do for a living. My work is to take advantage of the gifts He gives me and press on. It is His way in His world and that is good news.


This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details. When it came to presenting the Message to people who had no background in God’s way, I was the least qualified of any of the available Christians. God saw to it that I was equipped, but you can be sure that it had nothing to do with my natural abilities. Ephesians 3:7-8

    Amen, Mike. Our WORK is to love others, treat those around us with respect and graciousness, raise our children with kindness and wisdom, be good stewards of Creation and have a little fun ourselves. Our JOB is what we do to fund our WORK.
