Every one of you is living off HIS property, for; does not all this belong to Him? And what do you do in return for all the benefits you derive from the property of the Lord? You cannot eat it and sit quiet. You must at least give some physical labor in return; he who does not work, but eats, is indeed a cheat. Not that the Lord wants anything from you, but, it will give self-respect and it will purify your heart.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
