What does it mean to be human? The Bible is the best place to go to find, since it begins with the creation of humanity by the one who started it all. From the end of Genesis 1, two core truths present themselves in answer to that question:
- bearers of God’s image and likeness – uniquely sacred in God’s universe, and managers of his world as his representatives;
- workers after the pattern of the great worker. For those who submit to Christ as Lord, work should never be mere drudgery again. Work is central to being human under God.
