Faith and Work - everyday living

The photo is a reminder that our Lord Jesus is the Son of God, second person of the Trinity, and both God and Man, worked as a Carpenter. 

Adam and Eve were gardeners. Moses and David tended sheep.  Simon and Andrew were fishermen. John and his brother James also fished.  Ruth worked in the fields.  Paul made tents. 

God desires us to work--purposeful work. The Hebrew word "avodah" means both worship and work.  In other words, in our work we also worship our God.  Lest us not forget the importance of our daily work--for it is not simply work or just a job that we do everyday; we participate in God's work and God's mission into the world.
