I love this song below by Casting Crowns. It's really beautiful. Nothing I do can make me have value. I have value because I am a human being. I have value because God made me. I have value because the Creator of the universe gave me value. Does that mean that I don't have to do anything because I already have value? Nope. Work is a gift.
I thought it was really interesting when I learned a while back that God gave us work before the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. (Check it out in Genesis 2:15. The fall doesn't happen until Genesis 3. How 'bout them apples?) Work looks like a lot of different things. As I record my journey on this blog, you are going to see the different things I work at. It's not just my job. It's my business. It's my karate studies. It's being a mom and a wife. It's being a friend. Welcome to my life.
