Christ and Work: God's Challenge--by Linden Malki
Jesus worked. People kept saying,"Isn't that the carpenter's son from Nazareth?" In context, that would have been a whole series of mental images: the little kid sweeping up shavings, the bigger kid fetching tools, holding the other end of something, probably working one end of a two-man saw. My dad grew up in the lumber business and was always building or remodeling something; as the last kid at home, I was the assistant. Woodworking wasn't Dad's day job; it was something he did because he loved making something that filled a need.
