Wes McAdams   -  

Perhaps contrary to popular opinion, work was not a result of the Fall. Adam was originally tasked with work in the Garden of Eden before he ate the fruit. Humans are designed and destined to work. While work can certainly be done in a spiritually and emotionally unhealthy way, it should not be seen as a “necessary evil,” but a God-honoring use of skills, resources, and talents. In nearly every profession—whether it is collecting garbage or organizing numbers on a screen—there is a way to “image” God’s goodness in the way we help bring order to a chaotic world. Are we intentional with our time and our thinking as it pertains to our work. (Scripture: Genesis 2:15-22)
