It’s the 16th so I am reading Chapter 16 and verse 26 catches my attention: “The laborer’s appetite works for him, for his hunger drives him on.” We are hungry so we work. We work so we can eat. This is magnified when a man has a family. Then a man is driven to work so those he loves can eat.
This hunger, this appetite, drives us to work. It keeps us showing up when we prefer to play, sleep in or just do something else. This appetite is part of the Design of Almighty God. *Note, while we must care for the poor we must also be cautious of how much we intrude on God’s Design.
What other wisdom can we find in Chapter 16 today?
