#4282 – Take Care

Good morning people who work at everything as unto the Lord

Genesis 2:15 NIV The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Most people understand the concept of work. It’s something we do to get money to provide for our needs. Well, at least that is what we have reduced it to.

But I am stirred today by the original command of God that puts work and taking care in the same sentence and part of the one instruction.

From the beginning, people didn’t own anything – it all belonged to God. He instructed us to work with what He owned, and He brought clarity to how we were meant to do this; by taking care of it.

Nothing has changed!

The Bible is clear that ‘we belong to God’ (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) and that all of our work is to be done ‘as to the Lord’ (Colossians 3:23-24).

What would happen in the world if every follower of Christ worked as unto the Lord and took care of what God owned?
