Sermon Notes

   St. Thomas Aquinas was convinced that before Adam and Eve’s sin there wasn’t any work. He felt that work was part of the curse of the fall and now human beings have to go about the drudgery of working because of Adam and Eve’s sin.

   Many today would agree as they see their work as a bondage to be endured and they are miserable during the work week until the weekend comes when only then are they supposedly free to live. But it was before the fall of Adam and Eve that God gave them the responsibility to work by taking care of the Garden of Eden.

   This morning we are looking at some of God’s purposes for work that will be a blessing to us as well as to God and His Kingdom.
