Work That Restores

Jesus restored the work of Peter and his partners.

These guys had already encountered Jesus. Actually, probably several times.

But in this moment, the reality of who Jesus is hit Peter. He bowed, worshiped Jesus and acknowledged his own sinfulness.

Instead of being too good for Peter, Jesus asked Peter to follow him. Jesus would make Peter a fisher of men.

Peter’s work would now be restoring people.

And that is now our work. As a follower of Jesus, he doesn’t ask you to give up your work like he did Peter, he makes your work something that restores peoples’ lives.

You don’t go to work.
You don’t get a paycheck.
You don’t do what someone else says.

You restore peoples’ lives with your work.

Medical.
Food service.
Retail.
Skilled work.
Social services.

All of it restores people.

Find your work’s restorative purpose and your work will be more fulfilling!

What can you do today to make your work restore someone else?

This series is about leadership lessons we can apply to our everyday lives from the stories of Jesus’ miracles. Today’s reading is from Luke 5:1-11.
