This is the second post in a series that I am writing on how God is redeeming work. My major premise here is that originally intended for work to be productive, enjoyable and a natural extension of who you are.
In my earlier post where I kicked off the series, I mentioned I came across a presentation by Dr. Denise Daniels of Seattle Pacific University. One of the biggest insights I gained from Dr. Daniels’s presentation is that redemptive work facilitates
- Physical healing
- Emotional healing
- Spiritual healing (Daniels, 2008)
Likewise I have also found a post from Dennis Sy who wrote a post titled Redeeming Work. Here Dennis makes the point that “No longer is work a necessary evil. It is now a calling.”
Is it possible that by following our respective callings that God will lead us to work that nurtures our souls and heals our bodies?
