"So work is commended in the Bible as a good thing. Work is not a necessary evil we have to endure. It is both a privilege and a blessing. This is why we find satisfaction and fulfilment in work. To work is to be part of what it means to be human.
Some people rest to work - the only value they see in rest is making work more productive. Some people work to rest - the only value in work is earning an income to enhoy leisure. But according to the Bible, work is good and rest is good. Scripture commends hard work (Proverbs 6v6-11; 2 Thessalonians 3v6-13). But it also commends rest (Exodus 20v8-11)"
