The theology of work conversation is thriving. Why are most workers missing from it? Jeff Haanen shares his thought on why almost two-thirds of America’s workers are not heard in his piece featured on Christianity Today.
FDE podcast host and contributor, Rusty Rueff, writes a daily devotional on his thoughts regarding faith in the workplace. Today we share a post that originally appeared on Rusty’s blog site Purposed worKING. Rusty reminds us of our inheritance as Christ followers and our call to faith in our work.
The first thing God reveals about Himself in Scripture is not that He is loving, holy, omnipotent, gracious, or just. No, the first thing God shows us is that He is creative. In Genesis, He brings something out of nothing. He brings order out of chaos. He creates for the good of others. In short, God is the first entrepreneur.
“Entrepreneur” is a title thrown around so much today that it has become very difficult to define. I would submit that an entrepreneur is anyone who takes a risk to create something new for the good of others.
