  • The founding of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935 focused attention on alcohol addiction, as well as AA's 12-step program and "support group" (1969) meetings for dealing with addictions. In the 1960s, someone had the idea of taking -holic as a suffix meaning "addict", and a whole new category of addictions followed. One of the first and most important is workaholic . It was announced in the 1968 article "On Being a 'Workaholic' (A serious Jest)" in the journal Pastoral Psychology: "I have dubbed this addiction of myself and my fellow ministers 'workaholism,'" wrote Wayne Oates, a professor of psychology of religion at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. However, it was the appearance of Oates's book Confessions of a Workaholic in 1971 that propelled that term and prompted many writers to start using the suffixes -aholic , -holic , or -oholic to describe "all-consuming obsessions," not all of them so serious
  • Reference here the “Princess Di Syndrome” where here selfless deeds are a mask for her personal problems
  • Reference here the purpose of leaves & cap on overtime Studies show that fully recovered former workaholics are able to accomplish in 50 hours what they previously couldn't do in 80
  • Reference here the purpose of leaves & cap on overtime

  • Even when involved in the seemingly mundane tasks of a secular job, our hearts should be turned to heaven. We should glorify God in all that we do. We can practice this in our employment by doing things as Christ would, with honor and to the best of our ability.
  • God clearly warns us not to go into debt or cosign a loan unless we are certain we can repay our obligation Key word here is temperance
  • The whole context of 1 Corinthians 6:1-6 deals with disputes in the church, but Paul does reference the court system when he speaks of judgments concerning things pertaining to this life. Paul means that the court system exists for matters of this life that are outside the church. Church problems should not be taken to the court system, but should be judged within the church.
