Labor Day


Today is the holiday we in America call “Labor Day”.  It is typically a time for the last cookout of the summer; a time to get in one more trip to the beach or lake.  I suppose we call it “Labor Day” in recognition of the working class and the expectation that the “labor” gets a day off work.  This morning, as I reflect on the call of God and our mission as followers of Christ, it occurs to me that every day is “Labor Day” for the believer, but in a much different sense than the holiday.  You see, for the follower of Christ, every day is a day we should “labor in His field”.  The time is far too short and the harvest so plenteous that the Master needs “laborers” in His field.  I pray today that the Lord will enable me by His Holy Spirit to be more concerned about “the work” of Christ than about the “last beach trip” in my life.  Blessings to you as you walk with Him.

One Response to “Labor Day”

  1. Thanks for the reminder of our mission. Hope you had as great a day in God’s house as we did yesterday. God is still blessing His teaching about how we need to constantly be on guard of Satan’s lies as we are at war every day. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
