Book Summary of Work by Daniel Doriani


Work was God’s plan for mankind from the beginning. This is not all that surprising when one considers that God Himself is a working God and has made male and female in His image. 

“Since the fall, weeds and bugs, whether six-legged or electronic, disrupt work.” (p. 183) Work is hard, and sometimes work is mundane. 

But for the Christian, work serves a great purpose. Believers must use their vocation to love God and others and seek justice as they live faithfully under the reign of King Jesus, “whether they be professionals or laborers, business leaders or artisans, students, retirees, or stay-at-home parents” (p. xiv).

As Christians labor faithfully, they ought to consider their calling — a particular skill set combined with what they are passionate about — that God has gifted them with. They should endeavor to use these skills and passion to effect social change in their particular sphere of influence. 

With this mindset of Christ being King over every area of life, believers can bring glory to God in and through their work as well as make life better for their fellow man.
