Psalm 127:1 – Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. This study will be focused on the futility of labour without God.
Ecclesiastes 2:21 – For a man may do his work with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then he must leave all he owns to someone who has not worked for it. This too is meaningless and a great misfortune. In this study we will examine Solomon’s claim while looking at the legacy that he left behind.
John 6:27 – Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval. In this study, we will examine Jesus’ explanation that we should not work for physical and worldly needs and try to understand it in a practical manner.
Acts 20:35 – In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ In this study we will examine this saying in its context, looking specifically at the difference between the secular world’s adoption of it and the Biblical connotation of it.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 – Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. In this study we will examine why we should work hard in all good things, and explore the one place where we don’t need to do work.
