Genesis 2:15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

The world has placed a negative connotation around the concept of work. A lot of us complain about it and our ideal lifestyle is to become rich so we don’t have to work. We’ve been deceived into thinking work is a problem. Based on the scripture, work was originated by God.

We view work negatively because a lot of us are working outside of our purpose. God has given everyone an assignment here in the earth. Our assignment is attached to our gifts and talents. Some of us are called to be teachers, while others are called to be truck drivers.

Regardless of where we work, our additional assignment is to be a light at our work environment. What would the world look like if we had believers operating at their maximum potential, enjoying what they did, in the assigned area where God called them? It would be epic.

Let’s renew our minds around the concept of work. Work is God-ordained and it can be beneficial to the Kingdom of God and the world we live in.
