One of my New Years resolutions was to start and finish reading the Bible. From just reading Genesis I have a new perspective on life.
This is how I see it, God was the original welfare system only He was strict about it. He told Adam and Eve that everything in the garden was their’s to have so long as they took care of the garden and they didn’t eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad. Eve foolishly listened to the serpent, at the from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad, convinced Adam to eat from the tree and they realize they both were naked and hid from God. God punished Adam and Eve by banning them from the garden, they became mortal, they had to grow and hunt for their food now and build their own shelter.
God had to do this many times and in a variety ways, He flooded the world for pete’s sake, until he sent His only son, Jesus, to pay the ultimate price for our sins, his life.
Despite all this, people still work.
Work is a part of living. Simply sitting around and doing nothing will get you no where. Don’t just work what is required of you, do more than what is expected of you. Nothing worth having in this life is given to you. You have to earn your way.
Think of some of the most stressful times in your life, you were probably working.
Think about some of the most satisfying times of your life, you probably just finished a hard job.
Pray, learn history, research the events going on around you and become informed.
