The Bible speaks extensively about work and its importance. Rather than viewing it as “a necessary evil,” the Scriptures assert God ordained work as one of the purposes for mankind. It also points out hard work can and should be recognized and rewarded. Work is designed to provide for our livelihoods. We all have needs – food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and many more. Throughout human history, work has been the primary means for satisfying those needs.
“I pray my child will learn to value work and to work hard with all his/her heart, always working for the Lord and not for men. (Col. 3:23) …In Jesus name, Amen.”
