The Bible tells us "what ever your hands find to do, do it with all your strength". This is not an admonition to diligently do evil, "let him who stole, steal no more", and "away from me, you who work iniquity". Paul admonished his hearers to "find something good to do with your hands, that you may share with others".

The Bible speaks of the workers in the vineyard, and preparing for the harvest, and grace giving. God is completing a spiritual work in all of us, for it is written, my power is made perfect in your weakness. God's work is his will by decree, saving grace through Jesus Christ is his greatest work for humanity, accept this and find rest.
