For many of us there is little pleasure in work. We need employment in order to provide for our most basic needs. John Pletcher turns to the biblical story to encourage us to see positives in our daily endeavours:

"Four questions might prompt us to see the heavenly good in our earthly work:

  1. What do you really enjoy about your daily labor?
  2. How do you seek to intentionally integrate your faith with your everyday tasks?
  3. What’s most frustrating, and how do you find encouragement for your labors?
  4. How do you see your daily work carrying heavenly, eternal impact?"
