Because when we stop working, we lose a part of who we are.
In Genesis ’s vision of humanness, we don’t work to live; we live to work . It flat out says we were created to rule — to make something of God’s world.
your work is a core part of your humanness. You are made in the image of a work- ing God. God is king over the world, and you’re a king, a queen — royalty — ruling on his behalf. Gathering up the creation’s praise and somehow pushing it back to God himself.
