Work Your Own Work

            “And the Lord God took the man, and put him in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Gen ).

When God completed the creation of the heavens and the earth and all the things on the earth, He set up the Garden of Eden in the east and put Adam, the man He had created, iii the garden. God did not want the man He had created to be idle. God gave Adam the task of dressing and keeping the garden and dominance over the other creatures. Adam gave a name to each animal.

            When Jesus was on earth He worked very hard to save men. He said, “My Father worketh hitherto, and I work” (Jn ).

The apostle Paul said, “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any man not work, neither should he eat” (2 Thess ). Man should work.

We must work for the Lord also. Paul in his epistle to the Corinthians said that our labour in the Lord is not in vain. Remember the word of the Lord, “I must work for the works of him that sent me, while it is day : the night cometh, when no men can work” (Jn 9:4).
