Busy or Productive

It is in the very fiber of our being. Matt Today's pastoral care devotional scripture is 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13. As soon as God formed man from the dust of the ground, He put him to work. We were made to work. In a perfect world, people work. As we face another week, let's face and embrace the concept of work. Not only is work a must for most people, it is also a means of expressing ourselves.  Who we are on the inside is made known by what we do. Back in my grocery store employment days, a co-worker said, "They are going to get minimum work for minimum pay."  A few days later, this young man was getting "no pay" because he was "no longer needed" in the store. When a person enters into a personal relationship with God, he or she steps into a new life that is made of doing new work and new works.  (See Ephesians 2:8-10.) As much as you and I would like to kick back and relax, we are designed to work. Our scripture reminds us that there is a big difference between being busy and being productive. Happy Monday!
