Instead of worshiping your work, make your working worship.
What does it look like to worship your work? I said Sunday that if you sacrifice the important things for your work, it may be worship. That may sound strong to some people. After all, everyone sacrifices something for work right? Even the best people sacrifice their play time right?
I guess a better way to think of it is if our predominant source of identity from our work, then you may be in danger of worshiping your work. I think of Biblical characters approached their work, it was a tool, an instrument for that which gave their life meaning most, God. Think of Joseph working for Pharoh, David leading Israel, Nehimiah building the wall, and Paul making tents they all sacrificed for their work, they gave their all to their work, they took their work very seriously, but instead of worshiping their work, they allowed their work to be an expression of worship to God, the source of their identity.
So let's work hard, as teh Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians:
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters"
