Scriptures: Genesis 2:1-3, Exodus 20:9-11, 23:11, Isaiah 40:28, Deuteronomy 5:14

The United States has now become the world leader in non-stop work. We work now, on average, about 50 weeks a year. The average American works nearly 2,000 hours a year and about 40% of Americans put in a 50 hour work week. The more recent economic recession has given those without work reason to worry and those who still have work reason to work harder for fear of losing income. Add to this, massive lay-offs, pay cuts, endless work days, disappearing vacations and Americans are coping with an unprecedented level of job stress. In this message, Dr. Merritt searches the Scriptures to find God's prescription for the workaholic. Learn how to achieve a godly balance with work, and at the same time live the purposeful life that God intended.

"The God Who worked to create this world and the God Who created the very concept of work and the God Who created the very first worker didn't even let life get started without instructing us on how to maintain balance in our lives." --Dr. Merritt
