Labor Day

  • Labor Day, the first Monday in September, was a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It pays tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country through capitalism, not socialism. People who labor deserve the recognition and the honor. To you, I say, “Happy Labor Day”! And as the Bible points out, satisfaction from working is…well, you read it:

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
  • And while our daily and weekly work to pay our way, raise our families and provide for others is vital, there’s another type of labor that is even more important. It’s rewards are not monetary. Our task is to reach the world for Christ.

Matthew 9:37-38 

 “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
