Jesus not only dignified labor by His life but by His choice of disciples, for He picked them, not
from idleness, but from the labor force. He called them from their jobs. He wanted men who were
prepared to work.
It is probably a fictitious story, but a wife who had her husband cremated was asked if she wanted
his ashes in an urn. She said, “No. I want them put in an hour glass to set on the mantel. That lazy
rascal never did a day’s work in his life, but I’m going to keep him busy from now on.”
