The blessing of work!

June 13, 2009

“Work is a blessing. [YES! A BLESSING!] God has so arranged
the world that work is necessary,
and He gives us hands and strength to do it.

The enjoyment of leisure would be nothing if we had only leisure.

It is the joy of work well done that enables us to
enjoy rest, just as it is the experiences of hunger and
thirst that make food and drink such pleasures.

– Discipline: The Glad Surrender”
