He had people working his fields and vineyards in the hills and in the fertile lands, for he loved the soil (2 Chr. 26:10b).
Yesterday was Labor Day in America, a day to pause, reflect, celebrate, and refocus on the various tasks that we engage in regularly. Congratulations to all. Work is good. God is a worker. Adam and Eve were given work that they enjoyed before the fall turned the job into wearying tasks. God designed and equipped each one of us with specific abilities. When we seek God’s leading and engage in the work we are shaped for, we will enjoy every minute of it. Our verse for today reveals King Uzziah’s passion as a farmer. We will be fulfilled when we find jobs that match our gifts and devote ourselves to our tasks with passion. The pay, position, work hours, distance, etc. will not deter you. Supervising you will not be necessary. Best of all, as a believer, you serve as an ambassador for Christ in word and deed at your workplace. You have the best job. Enjoy it!
