New Life Church in Cupertino
Made for Mondays - Week #2
Do you enjoy or dread Mondays? Are you working just to get to the weekend, for the next vacation, or to retire? What if there was something much more to the work week than simply working a job? Whether you’re in the marketplace, in the home, or in school, God has a purpose for you. Together we will discover what it looks like to go from simply working a job to something much more. Join us Sundays in October at 10:30am as we discover how we were Made for Mondays.

Work...“is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

From Working by Studs Terkel
Obstacle #1
Work is different for everybody.
No matter what you do your work matters to God.
Your work matters because you work for God.
What would be different if you showed up tomorrow working with all your heart for God?
Obstacle #2
Our individualized culture has impacted our view of work.
"…a re-appropriation of the idea of vocation or calling, a return in a new way to the idea of work as a contribution to the good of all and not merely as a means to one’s own advancement."

From Habits of the Heart by Robert Bellah
"...thinking of work mainly as a means of self-fulfillment and self-realization slowly crushes a person and - as Bellah and many others have pointed out - undermines society itself."

From Every Good Endeavor by Tim Keller
Your work matters because people matter.
Your work matters because the people you work with matter.
"Work is one of the ways we make ourselves useful to others, rather than just living a life for ourselves."

From Every Good Endeavor by Tim Keller
Your work matters because the people you work with matter to God.
The Golden Rule of Work
Work for others as you would have others work for you.
- Boss others as you would have others boss you.
- Manage others as you would have others manage you.
- Sell to others as you would have others sell to you.
- Barista for others as you would have others barista for you.
- Prepare for others as you would have others prepare for you.
Your work matters because the people you work with matter to God.
