Created for Work?

Work—It’s a Good Thing!

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, a missionary to our evolutionized culture even the church.


Work can be hard and tiring. Often, it’s anything but enjoyable. But did you know we were created by God for work?

In Genesis we read that God created Adam and Eve in his image to represent him on earth. And they were commanded to have dominion over the earth. This implies they were to take care of the creation entrusted to them. And God specifically tasked Adam with the job of tending and keeping the Garden of Eden. Work isn’t a bad thing!

When we work, create, and design things, we’re copying our Creator. He’s the One who made the universe and sustains it. So, while work may not always feel good, we’re designed for it! But why is it so hard? We’ll find out tomorrow.
