Doesn’t everyone want to feel useful, to have a sense of purpose? The press routinely reports that extreme behavior by individuals—involving crime, suicide, terrorism—is often fueled by a feeling of uselessness and frustrated ambition.
I’ve always been grateful for what the Bible teaches about productive activity. The overarching theme in the Scriptures is that any task, no matter how humble or how grand, if done honestly and for the glory of God, good, is worthwhile and brings blessings not only to the worker but also to those whose lives the worker touches.
