Work can sometimes feel a bit like a treadmill that just never stops. There is always something new to learn, and we can find ourselves asking 'Why bother?' The Christian worldview provides good reasons to keep working and learning. Find inspiration from Peter Adam's paper.

"We need to think carefully about what we do, what we put our energy into. If we claim to
serve God, and want to avoid deep feelings of hypocrisy, we need to do those things that
we are sure God wants us to do. So what is the Christian justification for our daily
learning, and what is the Christian justification for our daily work, including our
teaching?..."
