Work: Not a bad word

Scripture: Colossians 3:22-4:1 and Ephesians 6:5-9

Work in God’s Word

  • “In the Beginning” God created work and gave Adam a job. He was to work and keep the garden to feed himself and his family. There was work to be done before sin existed. Work is not a curse. It is part of life. We were meant to work to care for and provide for our families.
  • Work is not a curse.


  • Obey and serve your manager/boss
  • Do your best as though you were working for the Lord
  • You are a billboard for God’s workmanship
  • You will be ultimately rewarded by God


  • Treat your employees well (fairly)
  • Treat them the way you want to be treated
  • They have the same standing before God
