    For some people work is tedious and boring. They cannot wait until the weekend. For others, work is their life, they cannot imagine their lives without it. Both of these perspectives lack a biblical framework for how to approach work and the workplace. This booklet offers an understanding of Godly vocation that will help balance an out of balance lifestyle. Christian Education Should Teach Students the Value and Dignity of Work. The scriptures clearly emphasize the value and dignity of work. Not only that, but there’s some reason to think that work will continue in the new heavens and new earth, albeit redeemed from the curse of the Fall. In the book of Revelation, for example, it is proclaimed.

      In order to understand the Biblical doctrine of work, we must clearly understand the differences between vocational calling and career, occupation, or job. Vocational calling is the call to God and to His service in the vocational sphere of life based on . The Doctrine Of Vocation. For Luther, vocation—the Latinate word for “calling”—means far more than a job or profession. Vocation is Luther’s doctrine of the Christian life. More than that, vocation is the way God works through human beings to govern His creation and to bestow His gifts.

The proper way to work out our vocations is by always striving for the double love of God and neighbor. But these vocations do not exercise love for God and his world until we put on our vocational gloves and get to work.

To be sure, all work is vocational, but the doing of the work looks different in each vocation. When Christians ask about vocation (or "calling"), we usually mean, “Is God calling me to a particular job, profession or type of work?” This is a significant question, because the work we do is important to God.

As nouns the difference between work and vocation is that work is (uncountable) labour, employment, occupation, job while vocation is an inclination to undertake a certain kind of work, especially a religious career; often in response to a perceived summons; a calling.

If the Reformers confused vocation, work and job, it is our task to rediscover a better and bigger and more Biblical view of vocation: ‘Our calling is to obediently serve in the healing, renewing and unfolding of God’s good creation (Marshall 16)’. Part of this book is devoted to ‘God and Work.
