The message version of psalm 127. The warning against making work our idolatry and claiming work as a place where we can co-labor with God.
Make the connection with the idea of "working within the womb of God," or practical spiritual tools for helping people reclaim their daily grind as a way of receiving daily grace. What if we saw our work not as a daily grind, but as a daily grace?
Bob Goff book...."Build a Kingdom, not your own castles" and use an example from book in which he totally transforms the daily grind for a limo driver.
Methodist prayer...."New every morning is your love, Great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us a desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen."
