Humans were made in God's image to represent his generously good rule over the earth. When humanity sinned and was corrupted, the earth was also cursed. The result is that the creation is no longer cooperative with humanity. Moreover, humans are in rebellion against God and so relate wrongly to work. Some work as if the all depends on their efforts. Some are lazy and think the world should serve them. Both are acting as if they are God and not creatures.
When we turn to Christ and are saved, we cease fighting with God. Regarding work, this means that we accept our creation design by laboring in the world as his representatives while also accepting rest as a gift from God. As we labor, we come to have the resources to help those in need. As those who represent Jesus, we work not merely to have more, but to give more.
If you would like to take a step toward helping those in need, two excellent opportunities out of many are the Immigration Coalition and Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse has a fund dedicated to helping those suffering in Afghanistan while the Immigration Coalition is providing water and shelter to asylum seekers and impoverished communities in Mexico and the United States near the border. The Lord has blessed us with great abundance in our nation. Prayerfully consider how he would have you give to meet the needs of others.
