შრომა ადამიანის გარდაუვალი, აუცილებელი საჭიროებაა; ამასთან ზნეობრივი გრძნობაა, რომელიც სიკეთედ, საღვთო, ანუ საყოველთაო მოწოდებად აღიქმება. "ყოველი შრომა, რომელიც კი სარგებლობას მისცემს კაცს და შეეწევა მის რჩენასა, დიახ არის მადლიანი და საკადრისი" [გაბრიელ ეპისკოპოსი]. ჩვენი "ძველებიც" (წინაპრები) ყოველგვარ ადამიანის "დასარჩენ" - საკეთილდღეო საქმიანობას "საღვთო ზნედ" უხმობდნენ; ყოველი ცოდნა ზნეობააო [არჩილი].
