Crazy isn't not? What is your definition of work and what is your responsibility? Is word "job" in your list of responsibilities? I have nothing against job, "if they were doing what we claim they are, but quite the opposite".
The beginning of work is from the beginning of time. God Himself worked for six days and rested on the seventh. When God completed creation He called it "very good". We are created in the image of God and are designed to experience success and fulfillment through hard work! As Christians, we should view our jobs as an opportunity to serve God through perseverance and patience, and serve others through a Christ-like attitude.
Where in this verse does it say anything about "being paid or exchange for funds"?
Does a high paid citizen life a better quality of life than our definition of a poor person? Why do we fear and work so hard not to be poor, when poor is actually the person dressed in dollar bills. Proof: Is a person of color inferior to white people? Do we act like it? Why?
We have so many reasons to eagerly neglect our natural responsibilities, our reason for being, our true purpose in life, but they all boil down to one: our false perception of money. Now, we are so hell bent on covering this all, so no one actually knows the truth, we have not a clue what is really going on. Menial labor and responsibilities are now considered "leisure activities". We’ve lied so much for so long, it all seems reality and we have come to accept this.
The promise for someone else to provide you another dead end job. In order to pull this off, they promise you a formal education to better assist you in getting the things you need; food, clothing, shelter, transportation and health care. I didn’t mention family because it is still the one thing we do regardless of the situation. As a matter of fact, they are constantly persuading us, we cannot do that right. All our other needs are being furnished based upon the current economic and social status.
Can a person really be homeless, income less and live in our world today? Why did we make it this way? What good is taking what was FREE and putting a price and tax on it, buying/hoarding as much as you can, depriving the very people in was intended to serve, levying a price on it and putting it up for the highest bidder; calling it a healthy economy, knowing it is not working, cannot work and never will?
The bottom line is: We are being educated to neglect our “real responsibilities” to take on our new definition of “a job”. The results of which are pipe dreams, empty promises, gross neglect, corruption, depression, anxiety, stress, confusion, chaos, fear, sickness, disease and we turn on each other. We cover all these symptoms with a band aid made of dollar bills saying things like, “We made it, we are blessed, too blessed to be stressed, God will, work smarter, go back to school…”. Our measure of success has evolved into the person covered in the most dollar bills.
We ignore the fact our definition for work is actually self-destructive. We choose arrogance as our goal to flaunt around our fellow citizens, so they will not believe, in reality the person covered in dollar bills is suffering more than those of us who have none.
Quality of life has evolved into a person, covered in dollar bills panically scrambling around looking for his next victim, in order to get his next dollar. We are all pretending like we are working for a better quality of life, when the opposite is being produced and promoted.

Working poor or poor working! If poor is not desired how can a job change this?
