Is Working A Blessing Or A Curse?

By | October 24, 2022

Do you realize that working or having something to do is a blessing? Have you ever been idle and looking for what to do? Are you of the class that regards work and working as a curse? What is your attitude to work? Is working a blessing or a curse?

Today I will show you that work, and working is a blessing and not a curse. I do enjoy reading one book because I find advice and practical examples in it. This book is a book of books with no copyright protection, so you are also free to read it. It has valuable information to guide you in all aspects of life.

I am going to simply refer to three cases to emphasize my point that work is indeed a blessing.

Case 1:

After God created man and woman, he placed them in the garden and this is what they were supposed to do: “… work it and keep it” Gen.2: 15. Man was supposed to work and sustain the garden, Period!!

Case 2:

King Solomon said that “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might;” but you may ask why does he say that? He supplies the answer: “for there is not work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Soel (grave), to which you are going” Eccl. 9: 10. Solomon here emphasizes that work is indeed a blessing, and it must be taken heartily.

It actually suggested that if you are do nothing person, you are not fit to remain on earth but to go to soel!! Lo! What an awakening statement from the wisest man ever lived!

Case 3.

Paul tells those whom he preached to emulate them and work to sustain themselves and put food on the table. This is how he presents it: “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” 2Thess. 3: 10. So no free food!! Paul is even more serious on work, to the extent that he does not even leave relief of hunger to the slothful.
These three examples emphasize the fact that work is part of man and anyone who does not want to work is an enemy to himself and mankind. Having said this one may say that I have not what to do.
This is where each one has to look into what he/she is interested in and passionate about. If you have discovered it, then this is the starting point in the right direction.

Another question would be: Are you willing to sell it to others who may share in your passion? If your answer is yes, then consider trying Affiliate Marketing business. This business model shall enable you to work from the comfort of your home and at any time of the day.

This will help you get busy promoting products and services within your passion and yet at the end of the day you are rewarded with revenue coming into your pocket.

If you are interested in this line of business, enroll in this training package for free. Thereafter, you will have evaluated its power and then upgrade to premium and build your career, and overcome slothfulness. Then you will then agree with me that indeed work and working is indeed a blessing.


In this brief opinion, I have shown that if you are born into this world, you are expected to be a contributor of something to be useful. No one is expected to enjoy the fruits of this world by folding his hands and waiting to eat from other people’s sweat. Those with a mindset that equates work and working to being cursed and the one that are considered a burden to those who work. I have also shown you that everyone has something he/she is interested in and passionate about. This can be an entry point to becoming a very productive person.

    Thank you for this amazing post!  I love that you showed the importance of religion and how it shows work is something people should do.  From a psychological point of view, I think it’s a blessing as well!  It gives people a sense of being and who they are and what they can do.  This is especially true for those who have families, but even if they don’t, it is still a blessing as you see the fruits of your work grow!

      Jessie, thank you for your comment. Surely, mankind/humans should strive to see that they have something to do. Even animals work for their wellbeing. Thank you once again.

    This is a great read about considering whether working is a blessing or a curse. I love to work and miss being able to, so in my opinion, it’s a blessing that many take advantage of by working as a curse. In fact, it is a blessing that people are able to work until health issues keep them from working and having to stay home like me from a stroke. I am going to share your article on social media, as so many of my followers think that working is a cruise.

      Hi, Jannette, first of all, I am so sorry for your condition of being unable to work as you would have loved because of the stroke you got. May you be strengthened! Yet, that said, I am also happy that you have something you are doing. At least your online work still keep you busy and your mind active. This is the blessing of work. As the saying goes: “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. Thefts and all forms of crime would not be there were people engaged in work! Please share with as many followers as you have. Perhaps someone will be helped. Thank you, once again.

    To me work is definitely a blessing as I would be bored stiff without it. I love keeping busy but obviously doing something I love. I think more people would love  working if they could all find something that they loved doing and the reason people don’t enjoy working is because they are doing the wrong job. Obviously you can’t enjoy every aspect of your work but if you can enjoy 80 percent of it you have it made.

      Yes, Maling, you may not enjoy every aspect of work but as you have pointed out if you do not have work life can be very boring!! Thank you for this good observation
