As the new year progresses, I want to take you back to the first chapter of the Bible. “The Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” Do you find it interesting that God ordained work before the Fall of Man? Work is not a curse, but a blessing. Man was created to be active, to do something worthwhile; do you see your work as an assignment from God? Colossians 3:23 could be paraphrased, “Whatever you do, do it as if you were doing it for God.” With this attitude use your abilities, work hard, and you will gain a godly smile. If you don’t have a job, work hard at finding one and trust God with the result.
