We Were Made For Work

The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. Ge. 2:15 NIV

From the greatest of us to the smallest we were made to work. It is not a curse it is our wiring.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
― Confucius

The goal is not to get away from work or to stop working but to find the work we were born to do!

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Pro. 22:6

The Proverb deals more with helping a child find their personal giftedness than it does with right moral living. Have you found the gift within yourself you were meant to share with the world?

It may not look like work to some people but to others it could be just the lifeline they need to keep going.

What work were you created for?

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, Col. 2:23

  1. In our family the statue of Peter the Great is known as the statue of Jesus. About five years ago one of the kids refered to it as the statue of Jesus building a boat. So since then, that’s just what it is. And every time we mention it, it makes me smile. 🙂
