Despite statistics showing that 54% of American employees are happy with their jobs, 83% of us are suffering from work-related stress. This begs the question: as a believer in Christ, why are we working in the first place? The Bible offers us an example of a woman of noble character who works with eager hands, gets up while it is still dark, provides food for her family, considers a field and buys it, sets about her work vigorously, opens her arms to the poor, speaks with wisdom, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Most importantly, she follows and honors the Lord. We can learn a lot from her example about working as unto the Lord. Finally, Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding.
