Monday Morning Thoughts

In Perspective, Work on August 8, 2011 by The Spillover

John Piper in 1988 outlined five ways to make God known through our job – those of us who work in secular jobs. Appropriate thoughts for a Monday morning:

  1. The excellence of the products or services you render in your job shows the excellence and greatness of God.
  2. The standards of integrity you follow at your job show the integrity and holiness of God.
  3. The love you show to people in your job shows the love of God.
  4. The stewardship of the money you make from your job shows the value of God compared to other things.
  5. The verbal testimony you give to the reality of Christ shows the doorway to all these things in your life and their possibility in the lives of others.
If we can rightly represent God on a Monday morning, the rest of the week should be a breeze, eh?
