“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in
the Garden of Eden to farm the land and to take care of it.”
-Genesis 2:15 [GW]
A Time to Think… “True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” ―Helen Keller
A Time to Act… What is our job? We can all ask that question and wonder if the job we are doing is what we want or should be doing. Instead, we should remember that our job is an essential part of our spiritual growth. Like Adam, we are called to a job and to take care of it…the calling is from God!
A Time to Pray… O Lord, many people don’t have jobs today, many people don’t like the job they have, and yet our world needs the wondrous skills you have given to everyone. You, Lord, have put miraculous work into each one of us. Help us to live our lives so that it meets your plans and benefits others. Amen.
