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.
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.
Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.
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.
