A Right Balance

A Right Balance.

Ex 20:8 – 11; Deut 5: 12 – 15.

Work idolatry is work without rest, or what is sometimes called “workaholism.” We fall into work idolatry when we engage in work without preparing for it with rest. Such work is ultimately meaningless and unsatisfying for people made in the image of God. Workaholism can be a deeply besetting sin, but I suspect that many perceive it as a sort of honorable sin. Human rest is first presented to us as God’s rest.
