Which books of the Bible address workplace issues?
We recommend working through the book of Colossians. Colossians shows you how to approach many practical areas of life living God’s way rather than the world’s way. And, it helps you build godly relationships with those around you. Start with our “Healthy Living Bible Study” of Colossians. The books of Ephesians, 1 Timothy, and 1 Thessalonians also address topics related to work.
