Why We Take Pride in Fixing Broken Cabinets

The gospel gives fresh meaning to our otherwise boring jobs. We don’t just work to make money. We work because God designed us to be creative. There’s a sense of pride every time we fix a broken cabinet. We feel happy when we accomplish our office tasks for the day. We look at our trimmed gardens and lawns with a sense of satisfaction. We get our salaries with a feeling that what we do matters to the world. Our work has meaning when we realize that our hands are doing exactly what God created them for: to be creative because our God is creative.
