God created us to work, it wasn't a punishment! Too often, however, we work for the wrong reasons and for the wrong boss. We put our hope in things like the lottery, unexpected inheritances or retirement as means of escape. This often results in a joyless workweek that becomes out of step with the other areas of our lives (church, community, prayer, study, preaching the good news) that we see as worship. When we understand who our true Boss is and the incredible inheritance we have as a payday, we are freed to work hard, with joy, in the most mundane areas of our jobs today. Let's be thankful for our work and start worshipping God with our Monday through Friday!

Life is messy.  Church life is messy. Every church has problems, because every church is made up of people. But God has called His people to come together to live life alongside each other and to encourage and carry each other, even amid difficult and challenging circumstances. The Apostle Paul planted a church in Corinth, Greece, and it very quickly became a church that dealt with many problems. They lacked maturity and wisdom, despite being a very gifted church. 1 Corinthians is a fatherly challenge and guide to them to help them get back on track and grow in the wisdom they need.
