Work is Profitable
Proverbs 14:23– “In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.” When we read the story of creation, it gives us a picture of how valuable man is to the things that God has created. He gave man dominion over all his creation.
***Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted***
There were two things that could not allow plants or shrubs to grow.  1. No rain  2. No Man to attend to (cultivate) it. This is the account of Genesis 2:5
It is written in Genesis 2:15 " Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it."

When a seed is buried in the grown, it first has to die before it can germinate, then it has to grow, for it to grow, it has to be cared for, fertilized, pruned and given the best care, so that after so many weeks, days, months or years, its purpose for planting is eventually realized, is it electricity poles, furniture etc that you want, it will take patience and courage to wait, while you take care of it.
