Proverbs: Wisdom for Work
Does God care about your work or does he only care about your worship? The answer is both. The average person will spend 100,000 of their waking life at work. That means that 1/3 of your life will be spent working. In this sermon Pastor Byron will show us how we can turn our work into worship and rest satisfied in God.
