Brian mentioned four main reasons we go to work: to pay the bills, to find our identities, to be successful, and to find purpose/significance. Which of these most closely captures your primary reason for going to work? Why?
Why do those four reasons we go to work fall short of being the purpose for the working life?

How does Colossians 3:23 change our perspective on work?
What makes it difficult to truly work for God? What are some of the distractions and circumstances that keep us from honoring God with our work?
What is one thing you can do this week at work to more fully work for God?
Far from being a punishment or a curse, work is actually a blessing, first given to us by God in the garden of Eden. And because work is a blessing, there is no such thing as a job without purpose. The purpose of the working life is to show God working in my life.
