Why Work?

Why work?

 

 

        • To pay the rent
        • To change the world for the better
        • Somebody’s gotta do it

Our culture sends the message that not having to work is great—retiring early, inheriting a fortune, winning the lottery, paying someone else to do our work. God has a different take:

Genesis 2:25 (ESV)
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

We are created to work.

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.

We are created to work enthusiastically.

Happy Labor Day.bless enthusiastic
