Rick Perry’s Devotional: God’s work ethic

Editor’s Note: Gov. Perry is our guest devotional writer.
It’s almost Labor Day, and the Bible has a lot to say to the common working man.

Prayer Time With Perry

Before the Fall,  Adam and Eve toiled in the Garden without complaint (Genesis 2:15). I’m sure they each had a 15-minute break in the morning and in the afternoon. The Garden was a right-to-work environment. As long as you had the proper legal documents, God would hire you for any number of tasks. But if some labor organizer got you to question your employer– “yea, hath the boss said…” or you tried to steal forbidden snacks off the lunch wagon… well, you were tossed out on your hiney. That’s how I run my Paint Creek cattle ranch. Applying God’s Garden work ethic to America just might bring us back to our former greatness.  I call it taking dominion.
