“… so God created man in his own image… male and female … and God said to them, `… Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over it …” Genesis 1:26-28 (NIV)
We spend our lives looking forward to time off from work. We can’t wait for the weekend and count down the days until retirement. We look forward to the day when we no longer have to work and can just spend our time resting. But God created us to work. Work is a part of our purpose. We were made in God’s image to create through our work. Our work may be in the business world or we could spend our time volunteering. Work is God’s idea for our lives.
Prayer: God, thank you for reminding me I was made to work. Help me to work in the place you have designed for me. Show me how to fulfill my purpose through work. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
