We all work in one way or another. It might be in an office, on a campus, in vocational ministry, writing behind a computer, raising kids, or taking care of aging parents. God says we are to do everything as unto Him. Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
So no matter what kind of work you do, remember that it’s all for HIM! That gives us such a sense of peace and rest and responsibility. So, on this Labor Day, I pray you can STOP your labor and enjoy time off with friends or family or just enjoy some quiet time with Jesus!
Also check out this article called, “Don’t Labor in Vain Day.” It’s a reminder to trust the One who builds our lives and guides our work and ministry.
Be encouraged by this truth:
“You may be in a season of life where what you’re facing has required you to recalibrate your game plan, make adjustments, change your expectations, and realign your priorities. Whatever your circumstances, He who numbers every hair of your head is able to do exceedingly more with the rest of your life than what you’ve been able to do under your own labor up to this point. That’s not an idle pipe dream. It’s a promise—His promise.”
