Verse of the Day
A worker’s appetite works for him, for his hunger urges him on. [Proverbs 16:26 – NASB]
Have you ever been ravenous? Probably not. We are blessed to live in a country that has a bounteous supply of food and other necessities. Regardless of the condition of our tummies, the essence of God’s truth and wisdom in today’s passage from Proverbs is obvious for all to see. It is the kind of profound wisdom that can be found only in God’s Word.
We have basic needs—to put food on the table and a roof over our heads—that can be met only by hard work. The beauty and simplicity of God’s Plan for mankind is amazing, and work is an essential part of it. Only through hard work can we provide for ourselves, our families, and others around us. It is a true blessing to be able to work and, by so doing, to worship and glorify God.
