“In the beginning God created….” (Genesis 1:1)
How gracious it was of our Creator to model work in His very first act on our behalf. In the beginning He…created, an act of work, followed by rest. Is work important to God? Oh yes, it is so important that he acted it out in the very beginning of creation.
Why would He do that unless He wanted to point something out? He values work. Often we work for a wage, a profit, and see it as just a way to provide. God clearly has a different perspective. Will we allow Him to shift our worldview?
He took the time to carefully lay out the creative process as a working week. He values our work as a Godly attribute. If it is important to Heavenly Father, it should be important to us.
Quick Prayer. “Thank you that you value what I do for work.” Amen
