God of all work,
Can it be?
Is it possible?
Does my work really count? Can it matter for eternity?
Sure. The new heaven and earth may feature celebrated glories.
Perhaps the redeemed New Jerusalem will feature what is good:
A gleaming Taipei Metro,
a sparkling Fenway Park,
a perfect Golden Gate Bridge,
a flawless Saint Paul’s Cathedral.
But will the Eternal City also feature my humble work?
A ditch dug.
An experiment completed.
An account balanced.
A diaper changed.
Does all work matter?
Does my work matter?
Give us eyes to see.
Hearts that believe.
Hands at the ready.
Because our labor is not in vain.
In you.
Amen.
