15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
Reading the above text, it struck me that God is highly in favor of work! Not only is He in favor of it, He put Adam in the garden to “work and take care” of it. In other words God told Adam to “Get to work!”
This holiday break has been an absolute blessing but it is over and now and time to go back to work. Time to be about completing and undertaking tasks purposed by God for me. These periods of respite away from the daily grind have a way of providing more than just physical and emotional rest. Ok, so maybe I did a bit more knitting than actual resting, but those long uninterrupted periods of knitting provided quiet moments of reflection and contemplation.
Rested, ready, reliable and responsive, let us go into the next phase of our tasks, whatever work we do, give glory to God while working! Be grateful to be employed and understand that God employs us to be emissaries on behalf of the Kingdom! Now, it is time to get back to work!
Making His praise glorious!
