Passionately Catholic: Work Has Great Dignity

by Suzy Kelly


Ponder this…

We hear from many of the people running for public office, the promise of free stuff, free healthcare for all, free education for all. Free cell phones, free food, and the list goes on and on. Many of us have bought into the idea that we deserve free stuff. But have we really thought about what the Lord has said about this?

Remember in the book of Genesis, the first chapter, no less. God created man and put him in the garden to work.

Why didn’t God simply put us on a beach with a little sunscreen and a cold drink with an umbrella in it? The reason is because God created us to join him in the work he was doing. He wants us to work, and work has great dignity because it has been ordained by God.

We might approach our work as a great blessing, knowing that hard work pleases God. If you have a job, be grateful and accomplish your work with joy in your heart.
