Work is Good

Long hours, dealing with adversity, overcoming challenges, the project that had everything go wrong, the project where disaster was averted because we figured “it” out.

We recall with fondness the times of hard work, perseverance and overcoming challenges.

Not so much the times when our talents were not being used.  Not so much when we were not part of the team.  Not so much when perhaps we faced a time of no work.

Work is good.  We are hard wired to be challenged and it violates our nature not to work and use our skills.

The lack of work and lack of purpose may help explain problems from inner-city crime and decay to fading focus in retirement.

The first thing God does after the creation of mankind was not to create the list of laws and rules, He said, here is a garden, tend to it.

Tend to your garden…joyfully.
