Why we work…

You’re going to roll out of bed this morning and there are probably a range of thoughts. First, what time is it? Second, am I on time or on schedule? Third, I am going to work. The first two are pretty straight forward. It’s when you get to the third one that we all have to make decisions. Ever thought about why we work.

The interesting thing about work is we often bemoan it until we don’t have it. I don’t just mean becoming unemployed either. Ask someone who is retired and really had no plan what to do next. They will be quick to tell you the value of why we work.

Today though, we want to focus on work as a point of character. It may not be a popular theme in a world that wants to “enjoy” life but we believe that doing hard things well is fun. You normally cannot do hard things well unless you work…hard.

So this morning we offer this to you. It’s up to you if you want to embrace it, but just remember, someone is.


Work Is At The Core Of Who We Are

If you are poor, WORK. If you are rich?, WORK. If you are burdened with seemingly unfair responsibilities, WORK.

You’re happy?, continue to WORK. Idleness gives room for doubts and fears. If sorrow overwhelms you, and loved ones seem not true, WORK. When disappointments come, WORK.

If faith falters and reason fails, just WORK. When dreams are shattered and hopes seem dead, WORK. Work as if your life were in peril; it really is.

No matter what ails you, Yes just WORK. WORK faithfully and WORK with faith. WORK is the greatest material remedy available. It will cure both mental and physical afflictions.
