God did not just command His people to rest on the seventh day but to work on the other six. The Hebrew word for work (avodah) can also be translated as service or worship. So in the Hebraic worldview all of life is sacred, and our work is an expression of our service and worship of God. Unfortunately, much of the western world has a Greek mindset in which we compartmentalize and separate life into either sacred or the secular. But we should have no such division—all of life is sacred and we should do everything as unto the Lord.
