Knowledge is great, but transformation comes through practice. Consider implementing these activities below into your daily rhythms to give the Holy Spirit time and space to transform you and your environment.
1. Read and/or listen to the Bible, paying particular attention to passages having to do with work.
– For ideas, check out the Theology of Work Project’s website here.
2. Begin your day with a devotional that helps you connect your work with God.
3. Talk with God about your work throughout your day.
At the beginning of the day. During your lunch break. Before you walk into that difficult meeting. Silently or with others. Practice being in conversation with God about your work throughout the day.
4. Set aside a consistent time in the day when you’ll stop working for a few minutes in order to reflect and pray.
5. Talk with fellow Christians about the integration of faith, work, economics, and vocation.
6. Start a small group with your church or in your workplace with the purpose of helping each other to make connections between God and work.
