DAY 13: Fri­day, Oct. 13

SCRIP­TURE: “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the gar­den of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” -Ge­n­e­sis 2:15 (KJV)

OB­SER­VA­TION: From the be­gin­ning God gave us jobs to do, not just to pro­vide for our­selves and our fam­ily, but to give us the gift of dig­nity which work brings. Lack of op­por­tu­nity to get a job leads to frus­tra­tion, and this can lead to vi­o­lence - the vi­o­lence of steal­ing and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

PRAYER: Bless, O God, the ef­forts of all who are look­ing for work; and bless our com­mu­nity with an abun­dance of good pay­ing jobs. Help our com­mu­nity end the frus­tra­tion of un­em­ploy­ment and the vi­o­lence it can bring. Amen.
