Work is a staple of life, but is work part of God's design for the world or the result of humanity's fall into sin? Whether you're in a season of getting paid to work, seeking work, or working to cultivate a home, you participate in the necessary, yet sometimes thankless efforts of work. Some of us even see our work as a calling from God, but most of us would much prefer to spend our time doing other activities. This Groundwork series seeks to discover God's original intention, clarify calling and vocation as they relate to our work, and identify a biblical perspective for human work, so that each of us can perform our work faithfully to honor and glorify God.
