Don’t let bad work hinder good news

How you do your work matters more than you know

How we view our work as well as how we do our work matters much more than we might imagine.

Jesus spent the majority of His life working as a carpenter. What kind of work do you imagine Jesus performed? Then what kind of work do you think He expects from us His followers?

Jesus emphasizes that we shine His light in our good works (Matt 5:16). “Our good works take on many dimensions, and we must see that our daily work is a significant part of the good works that glorify God.” (Work Matters by Tom Nelson)

The excellence of our work often gives us the credibility to speak of the excellence of our Lord Jesus and to share the good news of the gospel with our coworkers. Our good work paves the way for the good news to travel.
