They’re all good

25 January 2021

Earn your bread in any way, provided you work for it. Of the children of Adam and Eve, one was a farmer, the other a shepherd. All jobs are good, provided we’re close to God. Saint Paul wouldn’t take bread from anyone for free, but worked with his hands for it. He made tents. So the great saints of our Church also worked for a living. Christ Himself also worked, as a carpenter. He was God and human, but He still worked. Work is always a virtue for people.

Saint Iakovos Tsalikis
