"So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals." Genesis 2:20
"His servants will serve Him." Revelation 22:3
Am I the only one to find it ironic that we celebrate the American Labor Movement by taking a day off and not working?
I also find it interesting that work is God's idea while taking a day off of work to celebrate work is man's idea! Just another of the multitude of reasons He is God and you're not!
As we head into this week leading up to Labor Day how do you feel about your job? Do you enjoy working?
Would it help to know that God invented work, put together the first job description, made the first hire and supervised the job site?
And remember that this all took place in a the original paradise, the Garden of Eden!
We see in the Scripture verses above that work was the part of God's will for man at the very beginning of time and it will continue to be a significant part our responsibilities in Heaven! He made meaningful work for man and He made man for work!
So, if you find your boss testy, your job tedious and your co-workers trying it might help to remember Who created work!
And remember, praising Him is job one!
