Genesis 2:2-3 Contemporary English Version (CEV) –By the seventh day God had finished his work, and so he rested. God blessed the seventh day and made it special because on that day he rested from his work.

According to The Financial Stewardship Bible, this is the very first Bible verse dealing with financial stewardship. In this verse, we see that God Almighty finished His work. God worked. We too work and then rest. We often work for five days and rest for two. God rested for one. He made that day special. We too make Sunday special because this is often the day that we go to church and worship Him. During the week, we are busy working. However, we still need to take time to worship Him.

Since God made us in His image, we are to worship Him not only with our words but with our deeds. Working is a deed. We must do all our work as working onto the Lord. We honor Him when we work in an honorable manner. This means we do the work we are paid to do. We do not slack off. We do not cheat nor do we steal. We only take the breaks that we have been given by our employer. To do otherwise is to steal.

As you work, ask yourself these questions, “Is what I am doing or how I am working honoring and pleasing to God? If God were to walk through that door, would He be pleased with what I am doing? Would I be ashamed of what I am doing?” If you answered “No” to the first two questions and “Yes” to the last question, then you need to reevaluate your work and your work ethic. Maybe it’s time to switch jobs or change your attitude to a job that honors God. Honor Him with your works.
