Rumor has it that work is a consequence of the fall of man. If Adam and Eve had not eaten that apple, we wouldn’t have to work today. But in reality, work existed before the Fall. Long before that first bite of fruit, we witness God at work in the creation of the universe.
In Genesis 1:1, we meet God punching the time clock, so to speak, as a worker: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Finally, when the work was completed, on the seventh day God “rested from all His work which [He] had created and made” (Genesis 2:3).
Also after Adam and Eve were created, God told them to “be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:28). That sounds like work to me!
My fellow working friend, it’s obvious God created us, both men and women, to be workers. He knows that our physical and mental makeup thrives on work and creativity.
