Do you feel as if the work you do carries less eternal impact than the work of a pastor or missionary? But that’s not how God sees it. Your work, no matter how it may appear day to day, holds significant ministry and plays a central role in God’s plans to restore the fallen creation.

Just as the days of creation reveal, God is intimately acquainted with work. He has uniquely gifted and inspired humans to engage in redemptive work alongside Him.

“The Word Before Work” presents 260 readings, one for each workday of the year, helping you recognize the profound connection between your work and God’s work in the world. The initial four weeks lay the groundwork by exploring:

  • The meaning of work within the biblical narrative
  • The importance and relevance of our work
  • Five transformative truths shaping our approach to work today

The rest of this devotional takes you on a captivating journey through Scripture, unveiling God’s perspective on the specific work to which He has called you.

Whether you are an entrepreneur, barista, stay-at-home parent, CEO, or coach, “The Word Before Work” affirms God’s purpose in creating you for work, emphasizes its significance, and reveals its eternal implications.
