Man is Born to Work

Verily, I say unto you, that our God hath condemned man to work, so that, as said Job, the friend and prophet of God: "As the bird is born to fly and the fish to swim, even so is man born to work."

So also David our father, a prophet of God, saith "Eating the labours of our hands we shall be blessed, and it shall be well with us."

Wherefore let everyone work, according to his quality...
