SERMON NOTES:

C. S. Lewis:

“I know the two great commandments, and I’d better get on with them.”

George Bernard Shaw:

“I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is a sort of splendid torch, which I have got hold of for the moment; and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

  1. THE BY WHICH EMPLOYEES SHOULD

Colossians 3:22

1Corinthians 2:2

Colossians 3:22

Martin Luther:

“A dairymaid can milk cows to the glory of God.”

Booker T. Washington:

“That no race can prosper until it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem.”

James Davis:

“We live in a day and age where certain professions are honored above others, and yet if you do what you do for the glory of God; it has eternal value in His sight. He cares how you labor and He cares about the way you treat those with whom, and for whom you labor.”

 

2. THE BY WHICH EMPLOYERS SHOULD

Colossians 4:1

Sinclair Ferguson said:

“Man was made to work, because the God who made him was a working God.”

Studs Terkel:

“Work is about violence both to the spirit and the body. It is about ulcers and accidents, about nervous breakdowns as well as kicking the dog around. It is above all about daily humiliation….To survive the day is triumph enough for the walking around among the great many of us.”

Harold Abrahams:

“I am 24 and I’ve never known contentment. I’m forever in pursuit and I don’t even know what I am chasing.”

Eric Liddle:

“Jenny I believe God made me for a purpose—for China. But he also made me fast. And when I run, I feel his pleasure.”

C. S. Lewis:

“Anyone who has ever taught or attempted to lead others knows the tendency in all of us toward exaggerating our depth of character while treating leniently our flaws. The Bible calls this tendency hypocrisy. We consciously or subconsciously put forward a better image of ourselves than really exists. The outward appearance of our character and the inner reality (that only God, we, and perhaps our family members know) do not match.”

 

3. THE MOTIVATIOIN BY WHICH EVERYONE SHOULD LIVE

Colossians 3:23-24

Colossians 3:25

Albert Camus:

“Without work, all life goes rotten. But when work is soulless, life stifles and dies.”
