It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. The pastor steps up to the challenge of speaking about “Jesus people . . . practice good work” to a congregation with some who may need embrace work in more active ways and some (perhaps a greater number) who need to hear that God doesn’t want us to be obsessed by work. He pointed out that we work for God. Our motive for work should not be the enhancement of our self image. Becoming workaholics doesn’t make God love us more.

I was glad the ushers didn’t ask us for our Sunday afternoon “to do” lists as we left.
