The Essence of Work

Noémie Pons

A more complete understanding of the meaning of work can be visualized as a three-legged stool. Each of the legs represents one of the three great callings we read about in the Bible; the Great Commission, the Great Commandment and the Cultural Mandate. Work from a place of rest Steward what you already have Work is worship Work when it is founded in love, heals, restores and generates life
