Work. Whether paid or unpaid, it is how most of us spend the majority of our waking hours. We produce consumer goods, provide services, make meals, shepherd people and dreams, rear children, organize chaos, plan for the future, and then wake the next morning to do it all again. For some, work is a necessary evil, the antithesis of leisure. But for the Christian, work is part of the God-given mandate to cultivate and create. And by engaging in the acts of cultivation and creation—by working—you are imaging the Creator.
