The Hebrew word for serve is the same word used for Adam’s tending of the garden.
But it’s also the same word used for the bondage in Egypt.
Sometimes, employment can seem much more like bondage.
But what if we treated it like a divine assignment?
Or a commission?
What if we understood that we ultimately work for God,
And not the one who signs the paycheck?
What if we grasped that our presence fulfilled a sovereign purpose?
That we were the fragrance of life?
God sees your hard work. (Hebrews 6:10)
It is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Happy Labor Day
