The Joy of Working
Returning to work after the holidays is many things, but for most of us there's one thing that it isn't - a barrel-load of joy. That's why we need to take a step back to reflect on God's joy in his work, and on his promise that a proper understanding of God's character will also make us happy in our own work too. This message is relevant to everyone of us every day. We all need God to teach us the joy of working.
God loves being God. He enjoys it so much that he wants us to share in his enjoyment. He says that our own happiness depends on grasping how happy he is. That’s what the Bible means when it tells us that “The joy of the Lord is our strength” (Nehemiah 8:12)
