Does your work really matter? Sometimes we wake up and wonder to ourselves "Why did I get up this morning?" Work is a large part of our day to day lives, whether it pays well, is rewarding and engaging, or not. So besides the paycheque, is there a reason why we work? This booklet explores the idea of the two types of human work and connects them to the exciting larger work that God is already doing in the world. Fire up your imagination as you consider how to leverage your work to build for the Kingdom of God. More than you could have ever imagined, your work matters, and Dambudzo Mushambi demonstrates how it is part of a grand story that has been unfolding from the beginning of time and is headed toward the New Heavens and the New Earth. He engages common misconceptions about work, including the sacred/secular divide, and with practical questions for reflection, this primer provides concrete steps to begin engaging your work Christianly and for the glory of God.
I am a Zimbabwean-born missionary and part-time academic and writer currently based in South Africa working for a student organisation called the Student YMCA at the University of Cape Town. Most of the time I have a book in hand, whether a heavy tome on theology, a sci-fi yarn, or manga. I love Jesus, and particularly enjoy time spent with family, friends and a good Akira Kurosawa movie (which is almost all of them).
