Isaiah 65:21-23

In the beginning Adam's assignment was more like a caretaker or recreational in nature.  After the fall things took a dramatic shift to painful toiling; hard work.  So how do you view work?  Is it something you look forward to, something to put up with, or something your dread?

  • Again we are reminded of the admonition to work.  I Thessalonians 4:11

  • The command to work is so significant that if you won't work then don't feed him.  II Thessalonians 3:10

  • We live in a country of extreme opportunity.  Find some work that energizes you and then do it.  Thoughtful work show a trust in God.

  • Work provides for rhythm and purpose in life.  It is good for the mind and body.

  • What is the value of rest and vacation if there is no work.

  • Read Ecclesiastes 2.  Following is verse 24 - "There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil.  This also, I saw, is from the hand of God,".
