St Paul was a tent maker and he earned his living by the fruit of his labour. Work is not a burden but a responsibility which we all are called upon to do joyfully. When we do our duty well we not only earn our livelihood but also contribute to well being of humanity and to the upkeep of God’s creation. He thanked for all categories of workers and prayed God’s choicest blessings on them.
