Why Work is Called Work

Tonight’s topic is all about work. Work is such an important part of our lives. We probably spend the great majority of our lives…to think about it we spend say one third of our lives sleeping. Maybe out of that, we have two thirds leftover. Two thirds, at least, we are eating and then that leaves the rest of it forwork.

Now that we’ve established that work is such a vital part of life -- but it is also a part of our culture as well as a part of our psyche.  If we go back to the Bible days, it was destined that we toil and labor. It’s almost as if that was out of punishment, given by the Creator for the transgressions of Adam and Eve. In this 21st century, not many people work – - really- really hard. These days, machines and other devices help with manual labor. But almost everyone is working -- or almost everyone is engaged in some activity that is producing us a service or product for others. Of course, at the same time, they provide themselves and their families with some degree of financial stability. It’s a financial resource and that’s so important.

I have had a rather rough time at work lately.  It’s not because someone mistreated me or management is not engaging. No, this is all about me and all about the toughness or the difficulties (or the challenges, for lack of a better word) experienced in my work. For the most part, it’s all good. But there’s a production standard and Andre the Encouragement Guy! has had a rather rough time just to meet that standard.
