LifeWork Study Guide
Questions to Guide You, Chapter by Chapter
This study guide is designed to help you reflect and apply what you are reading in Lifework: A Biblical Theology For What You Do Every Day. It is designed for both individual and for small group work. We recommend that you read through the study guide questions for each chapter before you read that chapter. Sometimes there are questions that need to be answered before reading begins. If you are using the study guide in a small group setting, you could set a goal of reading and processing one chapter each week. Please take time to pray and report on the action steps from the previous week’s “to do” assignment before discussing new material. The Greek mind was interested in knowing the truth. Ancient Greeks wanted to fill the mind with knowledge, but had little interest in application of what they were learning. In contrast, the Hebrew mind was interested in both knowing the truth and in doing the truth. Today many Christians are more like Greeks than Hebrews. This study guide will encourage you to be a Hebrew. Therefore, in this study guide there are two parts to each chapter. In the section marked know you will be challenged with questions that will help you reflect on what you are reading. The section marked do will challenge you to put into practice at least one thing that you have learned during that week’s study. May God richly bless you as you process the material in LifeWork.
