Can you believe that it is Labor Day weekend already? What? It can’t be! The summer is very quickly winding down and we are getting ready for a new season and school year. Labor Day – a day that is set aside to pay tribute to working men and women.
As we enjoy the day off this Labor Day and as we begin a new year, let’s remember Who we work for, and what our work shows to others and why we work. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” (Colossians 3:23) There may be times when we get discouraged, or don’t feel appreciated, or wonder why am I doing this? And there will be times when we can “get away with” slacking off or not working with all our energy and best attitude.
We remember, we are working for the Lord, and He knows our hearts and our efforts. “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)
