Have you noticed that when you turn the pages of scripture people are often described by the job they do? Abraham was a herdsman, Noah was a farmer, David was a shepherd, the first disciples of Jesus where commercial fishermen, Matthew was a tax collector and Lydia was a merchant. Amongst other occupations, we meet doctors, tent-makers, perfumers, cooks, domestic servants, millers, sailors, prostitutes, shop keepers and builders. Jesus, who grew up in and around the family carpentry business, kept speaking of the world of work in his parables – farmers sowing seeds, women making bread or cleaning the house, and labourers in the vineyard. Work is all around.
