5-31-2017 The Working Man

“Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it” (Genesis 2:15 NKJV). Men were made needing a job. Men without a job turn to drunkenness, drug addiction, and dereliction of duty. The New Testament warns, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8 NKJV). “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going” (Ecclesiastes 9:10 NKJV). A real man works hard to support his family. Manhood takes more than cussing, drinking, drugs, fighting, and siring children. Manhood takes work! Jesus ” finished the work” God gave Him. (John 17:4 NKJV). Men, have You?
