Office Takeover

A common misconception of God is that He is always really serious and never really into playing or celebrations, but Scripture is full of celebration and play that is promoted by God, like Jesus turning water into wine in John chapter 2. The ancient Israelites were commanded by God to uphold 6 celebratory feasts a year that were full of feasting and merriment (Leviticus 23), and every saturday (the sabbath day) they were commanded to take a rest day from all vocation and have some time to relax and play. Rest and play are important for the spiritual health of humanity, but so is work. Genesis 2:15 says, prior to the fall of humanity when the world was still in its intended state, “The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” And Jesus, being our prime example of how we are to live a life in full commitment to God, says in John 4:34, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to accomplish His work,” His source of life and purpose for living was to accomplish the Father’s work. Rest/play and work are both vital components to a healthy life, and need to be kept in a balance. If we play too much our lives become meaningless, and if we work too much are lives become too serious and burdensome. Balance, as in many things in life, is the key.
