Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.—2 Chronicles 15:7
We are cocreators with God. He gave us the capacity to do the work he left undone, to harness the energy, mine the ore, transform the treasures of the earth for our good. But most important, the Lord knew that from the crucible of work emerges the hard core of character.—J. Richard Clarke
