“So the workmen labored, and the work was completed by them; they restored the house of God to its original condition and reinforced it.” (2 Chronicles 24:13)
Work is to be both honorable and good. If we are not working, we are not walking in obedience to our Creator. We are designed to work. We are also to finish the work to which God calls us. It matters not how strongly we start; it matters how successfully we finish. In addition, we are to restore and reinforce the work God gives us. We can do this by building on our foundation, Christ, as well as reinforcing that foundation by our manner of lives and the words of our testimonies. (1) As our text states, workmen are to not only labor, they are to restore, reinforce, and complete their work. This may appear to be too simple, but like so many profound truths of scripture, the weightiness is found in its simplicity.
