Work is Worship


Everyone has to work in order to earn money. However, there are some who think of work only as a means to earn money, and nothing more. As a result they do not perform the tasks given to them by their employers with interest. They make excuses, point an accusing finger at others, blame their tools, criticise their employers, complain about their colleagues - while they themselves work in the most inefficient way possible. We must remind such people that 'Duty is divine' and 'Work is worship'. Work is a dedication of one's labour to God. Work is the use of the inspiration given to us by God to create and carve and mend and shape. 

Work should be performed with sincerity, dedication and perseverance. This shows respect for what we do, and for the others who will benefit from our work. When we perform a task, however simple it may be, it should be done to the best of our ability. This shows not only our deep involvement in our actions, but also an expression of our skills. We must not forget that the first 'work' ever done was by God - the 'work' of Creation. And look how beautiful His 'works' are!
