more than work

"God created the world as a good, but unfinished project. Now he hands over His creation project to us. He calls on us to fill and subdue the world. This is often called "the cultural mandate". God gives us a mandate to create, invent, explore, discover, develop, produce, buy and sell. God has graciously invited us to participate with Him in the task of producing a beautiful world that brings Him glory...

Many people reach the top of their professiononly to discover it doesn't bring the fulfilment they expected; because although we are made to work, we are also made for more than work. We are made for God Himself, and work can never be a satisfying substitute for God."
