There is a profound connection between our sense of identity and purpose, and the work we do. Therefore we should (as much as possible) seek the fulfilment we can only get from doing good work, well. But what is the essence of ‘good work’?
Most of us think of work as a necessity – something we have to do so we can look after ourselves and the people who depend on us. But should we perhaps pay more attention to matching the work people do, with who God created them to be?
This article by Dr Tongoi provides a thoughtful entry point for those embarking on 'business as mission'. He explains why 'business' and 'mission' are not mutually exclusive terms, and cautions against viewing business as an 'access vehicle' into a community. A great theological and practical overview of how business can be a blessing to the nations.
Jan-Derick explores the importance of having a biblical worldview and how it influences various aspects of life, from beliefs and values to decision-making and interactions with the world. He explores various worldviews and explains how our goals can unintentionally conflict with our faith.
In this article, Sibs Sibanda introduces the important doctrine of common grace. He explains why a misunderstanding of common grace causes Christians to have either an overly optimistic or an overly pessimistic view of the world, and highlights a few practical implications for business.
One topic in Christian theology that seems to generate more questions than answers, is that of God’s sovereignty and man’s free will. And yet it cannot be ignored, because it directly impacts the way we approach life, including work. In this article, Sibs Sibanda deftly explores the tension between being subject to the actions of others, and being masters of our own destiny.
Although biblical faith is based on divine revelation, it also meets the demands of intellectual inquiry. Sibs Sibanda interrogates the false contradiction between faith and reason, which delegitimises the Christian perspective in public discourse and business philosophy. Essential reading for those who want to overcome the sacred-secular divide, and align their (whole) lives with God's model of reality.
