Who likes to work? Everyone, because being productive feels good.
Well, maybe not to cousin Joe, who's a couch slug, but to the rest
of us, pursuing goals and being useful is a positive experience.
Healthy work is healthy, and it doesn't feel laborious.
Since this is Labor Day weekend in the United States, I got to
thinking about people I've encountered during their work day
and the impact they had on me. There was the man at the post
office, whose polite kindness brought tears to my eyes; the Down
Syndrome pet store worker whose happy smile lifted my whole day;
and the Hollywood star whose pinpoint concentration astonished
and inspired. I realized no matter what the "job" is, when done
with grace, joy and attention, it had a deeply healing effect
on the world. It's probably less important what we do
for a living than how and why we do it.

The world was brought into being with Goodness. And the ultimate good
for Man is that he should not be shamed, but feel as a partner in the
fulfillment of the Divine Plan. Free bread is to us bread of shame - such
is the nature of Man. That is why nothing good comes without toil.
And according to the toil, can be known the harvest
that will be reaped in the end.

We never test the resources of God
until we attempt the impossible.
F. B. Meyer (1847-1929)
English Baptist pastor
The Creator has not given you a longing
to do that which you have no ability to do.
Orison Swett Marden (1850-1924)
American writer of the New Thought Movement
Each small task of every day is part
of the total harmony of the universe.
St. Theresa of Lisieux (1873-1897)
French Carmelite nun
The Last Word:
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are
heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
