1. Reflect on Colossians 3:23-24: “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” How does this perspective influence your approach to your job? In what ways can you work as if you are serving the Lord?

2. Consider Proverbs 16:3: “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” Write about a time when you committed your job or a specific project to God. What was the outcome? How can you commit your future work to Him?

4. Reflect on Genesis 2:15: “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” How do you see the concept of work in relation to God’s original plan for humanity? What implications does this have for your own employment and purpose?

5. Consider Ephesians 4:28: “Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.” How do you view the connection between honest labor and generosity?
