Is the work we do on a daily basis something to be endured or to be celebrated?
God worked to create the universe.
Adam and Eve worked in the garden before the Fall.
That makes work a good gift from God and something to celebrate.
In the Ten Commandments, God commands us, "Six days shall you labor and work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord." We spend more time working than doing any other single thing.
We are more than what we do, but we are not less. God cares about what we do! God cares about the work of his people—in church, in jobs, and at home.
