This 28-day family devotional connects the Bible to the everyday work children and parents do. Through daily Scripture readings, relatable stories about kids and adults, guided reflection, and discussion and prayer, families will learn how to work together and how to work with God.
The book includes an activities section with discussions of related books and movies, suggestions for field trips, and activities to try at home. The activities are organized around each week’s theme: 1) work and me, 2) work in my house, 3) school work, and 4) work in the world.
Each devotion is framed by a concern that real-life children might have about their work. Examples include: “I don’t want to work,” “My teacher is mean,” or “It’s not fair.” Each of these felt needs is explored through a Scripture, a story, a commentary, discussion questions, and a prayer. The stories, though fictional, resemble the real work lives of children and parents.
The mission of the Theology of Work Project is to study what the Bible says about work and learn how to apply our faith to our work. We all have to work, but we can't leave our faith at home. Our faith is a part of who we are. The Theology of Work Project gives insights on how to do our jobs better, improve relationships, and find value in our jobs.
