Whereas idolatry is an over-identification with work, idleness is an under-identification with our work: We care too little about it and find ourselves being idle in our work.?
Here’s a few ways that we can fail to recognise God’s purposes in our work, e.g.
- We see Christian work as what we do at church
- We regard work as a necessary evil to endure so we can support the work of the church?
- We regard ordinary work is not our true calling
- We work to live not live to work – work gets in the way of real life
