God works – and don’t forget – we were made in His image. Even in the Garden of Eden, man was expected to work (naming the animals and caring for the garden). We were not created to spend our lives lounging about. Whether an occupation or avocation, hobby or volunteer service, we must work to make life worth living.
Working gives us the chance to learn and grow, to collaborate with others, to discover what we can become. Work is more than just a means to a meal it is the venue for finding value in our lives and in ourselves.
