Work is More Than a Curse
Genesis 1:26-29; 2:15; 3:17-19
In the Beginning:
• God is a worker. Gen. 1, 2:1-3
• God created us in His image as workers. Gen. 1:26-28
• Work is to be an act of God-honoring worship. Gen. 2:15
After the Curse:
• Work has become difficult. Gen. 3:17-19
• Work has become distorted.
o Workaholism Luke 12:13-21
o Slothfulness Proverbs 20:4; 1 Thess. 4:11
