Have you ever noticed how animals have an ambling lifestyle. All animals have a born, life, and die cycle. While they can move up and down the pecking order of who is the stronger animal, they do not better their lot in life. They do not work, and the do not toil for their living, they simply exist in the environment they are born, adapting to the changing surroundings, to make their best of their situation.
Humans are created with a purpose, and apart of that purpose was to work. Unlike any of the other creatures that God created man was given a divine directive in Genesis 2:15 “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to dress it and keep it.” This makes mankind special in all of God’s creation, because we are designed from the original creation to have a special part of God’s creation.
What we do with our lives is important not only to God but also to those around us. God put us on this earth to be busy about His call in our lives. To many people see their work as a “necessary evil” It is what we do that gives us purpose and direction in this life. A housewife, who works to provide a safe home for her husband and children, a husband to goes to work every day, sacrificing his life, and time to the riggers of his job, in order to enable his family to have food and a home to live. These are but a few of the reasons that God has called us to the vocations that we serve every day of our lives. Today, give thanks to the Lord for His calling in your lives, and serve one another with joy, understanding that there is a purpose for what you are doing.
