As part of my ongoing assessment of how I spend my time I am undergoing an assessment of where I am most productive, in the work context.
- Devoting my time to discovering the mystery of God’s purpose through study, prayer and mediation and in so doing discover God’s purposes for me as an individual
- Devoting my time to my wife and children and in so doing discover the purposes of God for the family
- Devoting my time to the service of others and in so doing discover God’s purposes for the Cross of Jesus Christ
I have to work in the context of these, not in the context of work. Work needs to be an expression of something else, not an end in itself.
So by assessing my productive I am also assessing how the work place impacts on my ability to interact with my family and others.
