In Geneses chapters 2 & 3 the bible teaches us that man needs to work, and at times do some hard manual labor. While work in and of itself is not a bad thing, some think it is! At times we will have to do some hard work but it will pay off in the end. God blesses those who strive to stay busy and work with their hands and such like this. Hard work to some people is foreign and unnecessary but to the Lord it is a good part of this life.

What is the benefit of hard work? Hard work can be done by many people in different fields. One of the most important examples are Christians doing the Lords work. (Matthew 28:19-20) and (Mark 16:15-16). Some other examples are a stay-at-home parent, construction workers, teachers, engineers and those that work in finance. Other people who work hard include those that mow lawns, landscape gardeners, farmers, first responders and more. All of these people work hard and do an honest day's labor. The benefit of doing this hard and good work is the satisfaction of helping others, God being pleased with you and of course you can get paid or perhaps you might do it for free and still get a reward, The bible says, “A laborer is worthy of his hire" (1 Timothy 5:18). There are some important things to realize as well. Not all money is good money. Some people gain money by doing dishonest labor or bad work that God would never be pleased with. So always be careful and strive to do your best to do what is right. You may not get what you feel you deserve or worked for Some of the time, but the hard work will pay off whether by man or most importantly by God. We are told in Colossians 3:23-25, “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord and not for people, knowing that from the Lord that you will receive the reward] of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For the one who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality”.

So remember as you do hard work it may seem, tedious or boring at times but know it is needed to be done and worth it. God will bless us as we do Hs will and serve other. Continue to work hard because the ultimate pay off is heaven.

God Bless
