“In his defense Jesus said to them, ‘My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.’” (Joh 5:17)

Work is ordained in the heavenlies. What you do at work is good because God has asked you to do it. Companies that exist to honor God do so regardless of the output or the other things they fund; they have a right to exist in God’s economy because work is ordained on high.

Jesus worked for many years before His public ministry. Did He honor God during that time? How good were the products He produced as a carpenter? Was He pleasing His Father while at work? Surely these are rhetorical questions.

Jesus described His public ministry as work and even said that the Father is always at work. He is not a stranger to our workday experience and has a plan and purpose for your every day.

Quick Prayer: Thank You that You understand what it is like to work, Jesus. Amen.
