Christians find meaning in their everyday work by looking at it as given by a Creator God who is involved in work at all times. Since Christians work in a secular world, with others who have different convictions, how should Christians respond when there is a clash of values? Furthermore, while some Christians in professional jobs may have the luxury of considering how to apply biblical principles in their work, other blue-collar workers or even gig workers may not have such choices.
How then can the Church share its values in the places we are put so that others too can have a meaningful view of work?
