Job Offer Letter from God


If you're imagining what a job offer might look like in terms we use today, look no further.

“The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” (Genesis 2:15, NIV)

Headlines read, “Archaeologists Announce Amazing Discovery - Job Offer Letter from God.” Breaking news reports archaeologists working in a remote cave on the summit of Mount Arafat, discovered what is believed to be the first written Job Offer Letter. Imagine the buzz on social media and the Internet. Historians, theologians, biblical scholars, church officials, authors, business leaders, and HR professionals across the globe, are gathering to carefully examine and debate the artifact’s authenticity. One expert proclaims, “This is absolutely amazing - world changing! We must now reframe our thinking and rewrite all the books about business and the role of God and faith in the marketplace. The perfectly preserved manuscript is quoted here in its entirety:

Dear Adam,

It is with great pleasure and excitement, that I write this letter to you. On behalf of Holy Trinity Enterprises, We are pleased to offer you the position of Master Gardener, Manager and Steward with immediate promotion to Husband and Father of Mankind. We created you just for this unique role and have every confidence in your ability to do the job. We will provide you with all you need, including an amazing compensation package and great benefits.
