What does the Bible say about work? In the very beginning in Genesis 2:15 God assigned work to Adam & Eve, “the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. It was God’s plan for mankind to have job duties and take care of and tend to God’s creation. We are also commanded to work as though we are serving the Lord. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23. Have a blessed Labor Day and enjoy the goodness of God and His provision.
