the natural need for diligence

Genesis 3


In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return.

The first part of this verse says, In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread... That reminds me of 2 Thessalonians 3:10:

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

This element of capitalism has been a part of nature since the ground was cursed: That we need to do hard work in order to earn "a living"--so that we can have food to eat. This is yet another reminder for us to work on being diligent.
