Today in the 31-Day Challenge we read…
“For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.” Romans 1:21-23
Every vocation has “conventional wisdom”, ideas or practices that are accepted as true and right. But often they are directly opposed to what God says. They’re actually lies which often strongly influence our workplaces and societies without us even giving it a second thought. On the other hand, God’s word lays out Truths that apply to all facets of life, forming a biblical worldview which serves as a lens through which we should critically evaluate everything else. Can you identify the lies in your vocation, things that fundamentally contradict God’s Word and His design? What Truths from God’s word should replace those lies?
Your challenge for today is to write down two or three key lies within your vocation and then identify biblical Truths that replace each lie. How would you express these Truths in a way that brings salt and light into your workplace?
