“Scattered servants are not stolen from the workplace. They are sent to the workplace. The kingdom is not an escape from real work; it is an engagement with real work. Kingdom carriers are jewelers and gardeners, carpenters and bricklayers, shopkeepers and engineers, lawyers and doctors, architects and designers.
If we are to fulfill our mandate of bringing life to everything everywhere, we must see our involvement in institutions and industries and workplaces as kingdom work. We must reject the idea that kingdom work happens mainly in services, on stages, or on street corners and respond to God’s invitation to join Him in His work of reshaping the world in ordinary places like shopping centers, farms, factories, and offices.” Alan Scott
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” Romans 12:1-2 MSG
