An Important Work

What is important work? What is worth doing? I confess I have been swyed by the world on this one, and only now I am redefining my ideas about work and activity. After watching, LORD of the Rings, the hobbits work of dropping the ring into the fire doesn’t seem that hard or important. But it was a job only they could do, and ultimately it was that seemingly insignificant act that brought down the power of evil tumbling down. Everyone bowed to the humble hobbits in the end. It’s the same in the home, just because many women or men don’t ‘make money’ doesn’t mean the work isn’t worth anything, that it isn’t worth doing. In our busy, busy world, we define work worth doing by how much money it makes. And it shouldn’t be that way.
