Ok, You are willing to listen to scripture. If you find out your attitude has been twisted, a little or even a lot, you will deal with it instead of shouting down scripture. What do you need to see about work?
The idea of whether work is a blessing or a curse is exactly that – an idea. It is a mindset. It is not the job or the task, its the thoughts I have about the job or the task. The problem is the story I tell myself. “He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.” (Proverbs 10:5, ESV)
The actions of the two sons mentioned here were the result of their mindsets. The prudent son saw opportunity where the slacker saw only toil. Henry Ford is credited with saying “Whether you think you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” Your mindset can make all the difference. If you think the job before you is an opportunity to grasp, or a drudgery to endure, you are probably right.
