A Framework for Freedom, Fulfillment, and Flourishing

“Let’s embrace all work with the understanding that we are making contributions that carry eternal significance,” says Anne Bradley. “The only way we can live this out is if we have a framework for understanding why our work is so important to God.”

That framework includes freedom, fulfillment, and flourishing. To help understand this framework, the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics has put together three short videos that illustrate each point.

Freedom: “We need an environment that provides us the freedom to pursue our callings, thrive in our work, and that reflects the inherent dignity of every person,” says Greg Ayers.

Fulfillment: God is pleased and we are more fulfilled when we work hard everyday at whatever task he has set before us.

Flourishing: When we figure out what we are made for, how we fit into God’s big picture of restoration, that’s when we truly flourish.
