The Arrogance of Ministry Burn-Out (Part 2)

In the last post I wrote about an issue which has been termed “ministry burn-out,” that point when a person involved in ministry becomes so overwhelmed that their motivation to continue in ministry is exhausted. I pointed out that ministry burn-out is really a problem for all believers not just pastors since we are all called to minister. I also wrote about the problems I see in how...

The Arrogance of Ministry Burn-Out (Part 1)

The World Health Organization announced this week that it is updating its handbook, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), to include an updated definition for “Burn-out.” Burn-out will now be classified as a syndrome tied to “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” Specifically, they have limited their definition of burn-out to only...

Productivity & The Gospel (Part 2): It’s About Good Works

We’ve been exploring the different phases of man’s relationship to work—work in the sense of job, labor, or vocation. Man has had varying relationships to work from creation, to work after the fall, to work in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the last installment of this series we began to look at how the gospel changes our view of work. Particularly, we were concerned with whether...

Productivity & The Gospel (Part 1) – Is Christian Productivity Legalistic?

We’ve been talking about God’s grand plan for man and work. Previously, I wrote about God’s good design for work in Work is Not a Dirty Word. Then, in No TED Talks in Eden, we looked at how the curse affected work and how that makes attention to productivity even necessary. Now, I’d like to focus on the relationship between personal productivity and the gospel. I have...

No TED Talks in Eden

In the last post, “Work is Not a Dirty Word“, we noted the wrong-headedness of believers assuming that just because it is difficult that work is, therefore, a consequence of the Fall. Work was created by God as very good. Man worked with joy and pleasure before the fall, and in the eternal state, he will once again enjoy the unfrustrated, painless joy of work as it was intended. But...

Work is Not a Dirty Word

When we talk about the subject of productivity, we need to recognize that what we are really talking about is work—how to get more work done better, faster, etc. But some Christians carry with them the mistaken assumption that work is a bad thing. They believe it is a tedious but necessary consequence of sin and the fall. To many of us, work is synonymous with pain, toil, and frustration. We...

How to Save for the Future When You Have No Idea What You’re Doing – A Review of Betterment

Financial stewardship matters to God. How are we wisely investing the funds the Lord has entrusted to us? I’ve written before on budgeting, and the best budgeting software for Christians. But I want to share yet another service I use to wisely manage my funds, despite the fact that when it comes to money I’m a total rube. Maybe you’re like me. I didn’t really think about money all...

Made in the Image of a Productive God

Productivity has to do with work—specifically being more effective and efficient in getting work done. What we may sometimes forget, however, is the ultimate reason for which Christians should try and be productive in our work. We should be productive in our work because we were made in the image of a productive God. The book of Genesis demonstrates this profound reality. The Bible throughout...
