This week, our partner from Burkina Faso posted this video on our Global DML WhatsApp platform, with this comment:
Work is just part of our spiritual and physical DNA. Even when we lose all our ability, we still want to work because Work is part of God’s image in us.
When I watched the brief video of a man who was born with no arms working in agriculture, I was struck by two things:
- I should never complain about hard work!
- The need, desire, and joy of work is deep and real!
This joy in work has been frustrated by sin. As we see people rediscover their joy and purpose in work, we find that there is an attitude change which then results in greater productivity! When I work for money or I work without joy, my eyes are cast down on myself. But when I work as a calling, work for the Lord or for the flourishing of humanity and creation, my eyes are lifted up!
