Workaholism is a subtle “ism” because our society prizes production, hard work, and competency. There are thousands of ways we can justify our work and effort to achieve. Yet if not “working” is not addressed in the depth of our souls, this will lead to our spiritual and physical burnout.
R. W. Glenn, pastor of preaching and vision at Redeemer Bible Church in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and author of Crucifying Morality: The Gospel of the Beatitudes., addresses the heart of this issue in a 35-minute message shared in 2012 at the “Desiring God” Conference.
He clarifies one of the major theological reasons, maybe THE major theological reason why we don’t rest inwardly as we work outwardly. Take 35 minutes to challenge your soul and discover if you are “Working to Rest” or “Resting to Work.”
