- "What is the significance of the fact that, out of all possible occupations, God chose for his son in his incarnation the lot of a working man?"
- "It is a challenging thought and one that should be closely observed by those who are preparing for a life of service for God, that out divine Lord spent six times as long working at the carpenter's bench as He did in his His world-shaking ministry. Preparatory years are important years. Jesus must be about his Father's business and doing his Father's will. If that will involved eighteen, hidden, laborious, tedious years, He would not succumb to fleshly impatience, but would obey with delight."
- "If it was not beneath the Son of God to work as an artisan, then surely it is beneath none of his children."
It is important to remember that the thoughts expressed above are not inspired Scripture, just one man's thoughts and interpretation of it. However, I think the thoughts expressed above are worth being mulled over by the modern-day working person.
