I went into a McDonald’s yesterday and said, “I’d like some fries.” The girl at the counter said, “Would you like some fries with that?”

I know businesses are suffering with this labor shortage. Also, employers are lowering the bar for their hirees just to get a warm body to fill a position. Then there is that four-letter word feared by many called “work”. Work has to be fun and full of financial benefits. Does the Bible address this phenomenon? Glad you asked.

Genesis 2:15 

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

Proverbs 18:9 

Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 

For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.

Give it some thought and go to work, people.
