Clocking in when we go to work has a practical effect. It objectively states our presence there and guarantees at least our participation in the work of our employer.
This practice in our everyday life proves that without physical presence and participation in the production of a work, payment is not certain. Besides that, a long absence from work, that can be shown in our personal card, disconnects us from our employer, removes us from the experience that others acquire, leads us to isolation and eventually even the desire to participate in production and in the reward is gradually reduced, becomes indifference at first and eventually becomes enmity and hatred for the employer and his work, becomes poverty and misery.
The wealth we could enjoy is far from us and we experience hell and dead ends. The parable of the talents proves and clearly indicates that the only way to enrich our personal reserves of faith and goods of life is not only our participation but also our personal action based on our existing wealth and on the talents that our creator has endowed us by nature.
